WINNER! Crakehall Lad.

Crakehall Lad comfortably won his race at Cartmel much to the delight of The Crakehall Gang

Racing Post: “Chased leaders, led between last 2, driven clear soon after last (op 9/2).

CRAKEHALL LAD was reverting to hurdles off the Flat and jumped better than when unseating his rider at Hexham the previous month. He finished a promising second over today´s trip on good to soft at Sedgefield on hurdling debut in May and a slight improvement on that display has seen him thrash this lacklustre field.”

Storming into 3rd

Storm Check finished third in his race at Doncaster.

The Racing Post commented “Held up in rear, headway on outer 4f out, chased leaders 2f out, soon ridden and edged persistently left, driven and kept on, no impression final furlong (op 14/1).

Storm Check posted another improved effort in defeat and a sounder surface over this trip could do the trick.”
