Intended Runners For This Week 06/03/2017
lukeschembri , Monday 06 March 2017 - 06:21:55 //

We had a quiet week on the runner front after we had our first runner and first winner in Qatar two weekends ago. Mr Scaramanga was a horse that, investors in the yard, Robert Moss and Christopher Brennan bought for £90,000 at the ‘Horses in Training Sale’ at Tattersalls last year. He had some good form to his name, finishing fourth behind Churchill in the Chesham and being placed in a Group 2 and a Listed race. He won first time out for the yard in a minor Conditions race at Lingfield and he was then sent to Newcastle where he disappointed. The initial plan was to take him to Dubai which we were not able to do after his latest effort. Luckily he was invited to Qatar to compete in the Group 2 Al Biddah Mile. He missed a prep race which was far from ideal but we thought we would send him out for the trip anyway. We managed to get world class jockey Adrie de Vries to ride and the rest was history. 
He broke well from a low draw and was pushed along to get a prominent position on the rail by de Vries. He was keen through the early stages of the race and looked to be expending too much energy and important parts. Turning in to the home straight a beautiful gap opened up for him and he quickened very well to take advantage of it. He continued to stay on strongly in the last two furlongs and in the end he scored by a comfortable three quarters of a length. 
It was an unbelievable result for the yard, picking up a purse of that size and it was well deserved for all of the staff and particularly the owners. They have been very loyal supporters of the yard over the past few years and have invested heavily in some very nice bloodstock. We still have some very well bred, unraced horses to get on the track for them and hopefully Mr Scaramanga’s victory was a taste of what is yet to come. 
We have two runners for this week in the form of Roundabout Magic and Forceful Appeal. 
Roundabout Magic is due to run, on Wednesday, at Lingfield, in the 15.00 32red Handicap, over 5f, with Nicky Mackay in the saddle. This little Zebedee colt is a last time out winner who just held on to get his nose in front and score his second win for the Six Mile Hill Syndicate. He broke with his customary speed and was settled in a lovely position by Mackay. He travelled with all of his usual enthusiasm and got a lovely split up the rail when turning for home. He showed a great turn of foot and soon put a couple of lengths between himself and the rest of the field. In the last furlong it looked as though he was going to score rather cosily but all of a sudden one of his rivals started to motor and looked as though he was going to catch our lad. The line came just in time and it was great to win with him again. He has gone up 4lb for that run which is going to make life more difficult but he will be running over the same track and trip that he has won twice at so we would be hoping for a good run once again. 
Forceful Appeal is due to run on Saturday, at Wolverhampton, in the Sunbets.co.uk Lincoln Trial Handicap, over the extended mile. This Succesful Appeal gelding has been a great servant to the yard and has been running very well in very good races. He won twice over the Christmas period scoring a career high mark which has struggling in much higher graded races now. He was last seen finishing last a Lingfield in Class 3 handicap. He broke well but was held up towards the rear of the field by Hollie Doyle. He travelled well but when the pace started to quicken three out he was just not able to quicken enough to challenge the rest of the field. He has come out of that race in good form; however, it is likely he will struggle in top company once again.
