Nice win for Takatul, but a frustrating second for Angel Of Darkness

We were delighted to get Takatul back as a four year old and after his cosy win at Lingfield on Wednesday we think he is a horse who can climb the ladder. He’s still relatively lightly raced and appears effective on theΒ turf or the all weather.

Angel Of Darkness went a bit too soon in her race and done on the line. She didn’t deserve to finish second, but is an improving filly and it looks like she’s effective at both six and seven furlongs.

Never Surrender didn’t run too badly at Epsom considering he didn’t handle the track at all. Jamie said if he’d picked his stick up he would have wiped out half the field. He could be seen at Chester.
