Across-the-card treble

Joe Fanning partnered Christopher Johnston’s Pumblechook at Catterick in the 14-furlong handicap in soft conditions. The Dalakhani four-year-old gelding tracked the leaders most of the way, but in charge entering the last furlong to win by two and a half lengths. Pumblechook has won four of his 11 outings to date.

At Leicester, Peach Melba, the three-year-old filly by Dream Ahead owned by Lowther Racing & Partner, lined up in the seven-furlong handicap. Three were declared non-runners so a field of five went to post. Peach Melba won by two and a half lengths under a strong drive from P J McDonald. This was Peach Melba’s second win in under two weeks. The consistent filly has won twice and been placed five times from eight starts.

Racing at Nottingham in heavy conditions, the Passionate Partnership’s juvenile Book Of Dreams (pictured above under Megan Graham) was having his first start. Franny Norton was aboard the Dream Ahead colt in the six-furlong novice median auction stakes. Always prominent, Book Of Dreams showed his greenness when pressed in the last two furlongs but Franny kept driving the colt forward throughout to win by a short head.

Congratulations to all involved!
