Puffin Billy

29th March 2015 – Ascot 14:30 – Winner at 9/4

Puffin Billy finished just a short head to the good of 11/10 favourite Thomas Crapper to kick off our Lucky 15. These two charges were 31 lengths clear of third in the four-strong 2m,5f Ascot class three field.

It was a strong front-running performance from the Oliver Sherwood winner who carried top weight and was able to overcome a December fall at the track that left him ‘at death’s door’.

‘It was no mean feat giving the second 10lbs and also to come back here after his horror fall in December,’ Sherwood told Sporting Life.

‘You’re never quite sure if they’ll remember but we’d done a lot of schooling with him.’

The Warrior

29th March 2015 – Curragh 14:40 – Winner at 6/4

Entered into the 25-strong Big Bad Bob Maiden at the Curragh, The Warrior was probably the riskiest of the four Lucky15 legs. Our followers needn’t have been worried, however, as the former Group One challenger managed to see off racetrack debutant Mulkeyya in the 6f dash by two-and-a-half lengths.

Ridden by Ryan Moore, Aiden O’Brien’s charge broke from stall 22, all horses choosing to join him at the far side rail following the first couple of furlongs. Moore had 11 horses in front of him at the half way point but was happy enough that he could penetrate the banks of five and six.

The Warrior needed some cajoling in the penultimate furlong but eventually emerged in the leading group with one to run. The three-year-old picked up well in the last to forge out his almost three length advantage.

Windshear

29th March 2015 – Doncaster 15:55 – Winner at 15/8

Richard Hannon’s Windshear justified favouritism to take home a 12f class two at Donny and complete the first three legs of our Lucky 15. Ridden by Sean Levey, the two-time Group Three placed horse emerged from the pack with 2f remaining after being held up in the opening stages. The four-year-old beat Ed Dunlop’s Island Remede by three-quarters-of-a-length despite his rein having snapped. That filly got her head in front of Fattosa in something of a bunch finish.

Speaking of the mount that finished fourth in September’s St Leger at the track Hannon told Racing UK: ‘He’s stronger this year and we’ve got some pretty lofty plans. He’ll probably go to Newbury for the Group Three John Porter Stakes and we’ve spoken about the Melbourne Cup.’

Bonny Kate

29th March 2015 – Limerick 16:00 – Winner at 7/4

Bonny Kate made all in her 2m,3f Limerick mares’ hurdle run to secure a winner for Noel Meade and to ensure that we earned maximum profit from our Lucky 15 wager. The five-year-old rounded off the day in style, running out the five length victor over Michael C Griffin’s former Grade Three runner Golan Road.

The Patricia Hunt-owned charge looked a class apart throughout the whole race, a vast swathe of the remaining six entrants never getting on terms with Ger Fox-ridden charge. Bonny Kate’s job was made a little easier as the improving Annamatopoeia, one horse that looked likely to challenge in the closing stages, hit the turf at the 8th obstacle. Whilst her biggest opposition seemed to be what stood in front of her, she negotiated each hurdle with aplomb.
