Gabrial Leads Way In Big Beverley Race

Sprinters get the run of the on Saturday 28th  in ’s latest high-class meeting.

And in the Brian Yeardley Continental Two-Year-Old Trophy (3.45pm), the classiest field of the season so far on the Westwood gathers to fight for the almost £10,000 first prize.

It’s a class field of two-year-olds who have all showed winning form in their first season, so it is worth looking at draw and form of the stable to pick a winner.

Therefore, the smart money comes must go on the Richard Fahey-trained Gabrial. Fahey, no stranger to winning at Beverley, is one of the form trainers of two-year-olds this season with 14 wins from 43 races.

With Paul Hanagan aboard and with the inside draw on the uphill sprint track, Gabrial is strongly expected to back up his only previous run when he cruised in by two-and-a-half lengths from a powerful field at Chester in May.

Gabrial can be expected to be pushed all the way by the Kevin Ryan-trained Hamza up the straight but Gabrial looks to have the stamina needed to stay on in a close finish.

This is followed at 4.30pm by the Brantingham Condition Stakes, another 5f sprint, with local favourite Silvestre De Sousa on Mark Johnston’s Love Delta worth a look.

Drawn four of seven, Johnston’s horse finished second at Goodwood in another Class 2 race, only narrowly beaten by the useful Crown Choice.

Challenges come from all sides in the aging Tax Free and Liberty Lady, who has the prime inside draw.
