WINNER 3 OF 2022: AIRSHOW, trained by Rod Millman and ridden by Mr Patrick Millman: 'The Unibet Amateur Jockeys' Handicap' over 6f at Kempton.
We lined up two horses in this amateur riders contest and Airshow was taken down early to the start. Breaking in his usual swift style, he was at the head of the field. Pat got busy around 1f from home, as he was by then hard pressed, but he kept on and was always doing enough to fend off the two challengers on both sides, including our very own TYGER BAY!
This was a 7th career win for the likeable and consistent chestnut, who likes bowling along in front and he toughed it out today. It was super, also, seeing Tyger Bay come home in 2nd, as he flew home on the outer.
"It's Airshow who is finding more; makes all and it's a 1-2 for Middleham Park!" Watch the full race replay here: https://www.racingtv.com/videos/watch/horse_racing_replays/371183-unibet-amateur-jockeys-handicap-4
Timeform rated it as a career best p88+ performance, saying: "Resumed winning ways in tenacious fashion back up in trip, managing to fend off challengers on either side having set a sound gallop; made all, travelled fluently, pushed along 2f out, dug deep under pressure; should remain competitive.”
Patrick said in his Racing TV interview: "That was always the plan with him to go forward and keep it simple. He was very genuine there to fend off the 2nd and 3rd horse either side of him.”
Syndicate manager Tim says: "He is such a likeable horse and has given his owners such fun over the last 12 months. With 2021 form figures of 3327211242 and now a winner again yesterday, he is now a 7 time winner for them and will continue to run over the winter. Congratulations to them and thank you to Rod Millman, for the work he has done with him to keep him in such good form. A career best performance yesterday is fantastic! With three winners in three days, our form looks like it is keeping up with the stellar 2021 we had for our owners!”
