21 July

Posted on July 21, 2019

With a furlong to go I thought Alexander the Grey was finally going to break his duck – but how many times have we thought that before ?! Lilly gave him a super front-running ride and was still on the bridle, 10 lengths clear, turning out of the back straight at Stratford with everything hard at work behind. He was still travelling as he approached the last, with only 1 making any sort of progress towards him, but then as he so often does, he found nothing for pressure and was relegated to second on the run in. Its fair to say he is the most frustrating horse – still a maiden after 23 starts, but on 14 occasions he’s been in the places.
