Bally wins the Happy Birthday Wayne Hockley Congratulations Handicap Hurdle (Class 2) 3m2½fNick Scholfeild was pleased he got down to do the weight to win on Ballyegan Hero. He made it a strong even pace to ensure it didnt turn into a sprint finish, he remained a staying race which played into Bally's strengths. It was a great front running ride by Nick and a great performance by Bally.
Ballyegan Hero continues in good form with a second at Uttoxeter in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap Chase (Class 2) 3m2f.
Bally jumped supurbly and got every yard of the trip and stayed on strongly. Tom was pleased he was able to compete at this grade.
