Flylikeaneagle has been a revelation since joining us and he made it two wins from three starts for the yard when landing the 1m1f apprentice handicap at Musselburgh yesterday.
Confidently ridden by young William Pyle, he travelled supremely well into the race as he led on the bridle entering the final two furlongs. He didn’t do a lot once hitting the front, as is his wont, but he had enough in reserve to score by a length, taking our Flat tally for 2022 to a personal best five winners. He’ll escape a penalty for this latest success and we’ll look to take advantage of that by turning him out again next week.
Huge credit must go to Steven Kelly for sourcing the horse, one who looks capable of winning again in his current vein of form.
