Welsh aces rack­ing up the win­ners

Llanelli Star - - SOCCER AND RACING - Olivia Tudor

THE sum­mer months are meant to be a qui­eter pe­riod for Na­tional Hunt jock­eys and train­ers, but that cer­tainly isn’t the case for the Welsh as they have been rack­ing up the win­ners within the last week.

Promis­ing jockey Connor Brace won on the con­sis­tent Ta­mar­illo Grove for trainer Sophie Leech last week at New­ton Ab­bot. This was their sec­ond win in un­der a month at the course.

Mean­while at Fon­twell, Richard Patrick won on Not A Role Model for Cardiff-based trainer Sam Thomas, who pulled away nicely from his ri­vals.

The horse, trainer and jockey could have an ex­cit­ing sum­mer cam­paign of jump­ing ahead of them.

In the next race on the card, am­a­teur Jack Tudor was on the mark with Pad­dys Run­ner for his boss Chris­tian Wil­liams. This was the horse’s first run for the yard and he showed an im­proved level of form to win by seven lengths.

Last Thurs­day saw the Wales Air Am­bu­lance Char­ity Racenight at Ffos Las.

There was plenty of Welsh suc­cess at the track and the in-form duo of Tim Vaughan and Alan Johns came away with a dou­ble. It was spear­headed by All­timegold, who bagged his fourth vic­tory in his last five runs by tak­ing a novices’ hand­i­cap hur­dle in com­fort­able fash­ion from Sin Sin.

The sec­ond leg of their dou­ble came in the novices’ chase where Chimes Of Dy­lan took over at the last fence to win by two-and-a-quar­ter lengths.

Code­share took the last race of the evening for Pem­brokeshire trainer Peter Bowen and course am­bas­sador Sean Bowen. The bay geld­ing went off favourite and built on the im­prove­ment he showed last time out to take the 2m4f hur­dle from Bel­mont Jewel.

The next meet­ing at Ffos Las is its 10th birth­day party on Thurs­day, June 20.

There will be per­for­mances from a Tom Jones trib­ute act and a Valli Boys trib­ute band. There will also be other birth­day en­ter­tain­ment through­out the evening.

Tick­ets are £10 per per­son in ad­vance from ei­ther the Ffos Las web­site or ring the race­course of­fice on 01554 811092.
