A Rattling Good Show!
WINNER 122 OF 2022: RATTLING, trained by Richard Hannon and ridden by Alec Voikhansky (-7): The'Try Our New Price Boosts at Unibet Fillies' Handicap' over 6f at Kempton.
She broke well from stall 1, but immediately the pace was very strong and as they came to the bend, she was at the rear of the field. As they approached the cut-away, Alec asked her for an effort and she soon increased her pace and went second 1f out. Stretching out, she then led in the final 110yds, keeping on well to win by 1 and 3/4 lengths.
"Rattling wins again for Middleham Park Racing, Richard Hannon and Alec Voikhansky, who gets a great tune out of this Acclamation filly!" Watch the full race replay here: https://www.racingtv.com/videos/watch/horse_racing_replays/423665-try-our-new-price-boosts-at-unibet-fillies-handicap-4
Timeform rated it as a career best p87, saying: "Produced a career best to record her fourth win of the year, seen to maximum effect; held up, headway under pressure over 1f out, stayed on to lead final 1f, driven out, helped by being held up in a strongly-run race.”
This was the final race on the Kempton card and sadly, no interview with Alec was broadcast on Racing TV. However, after the race and celebrations, Alec told us: "She broke fine, but they went very, very quick in front, so I was happy to sit in behind and let her cruise. I waited until the straight and then asked her and she took the lead at the 1 pole, running on well to the line."
Syndicate manager Tim says: "Well done to Alec again, that was a good ride. He gets on well with her, as they have now won 3 races together since October 31st! She is a tough filly and has given her owners some fun this year - congratulations to them all."
