Revich Revs Up a Gear on the Roodee!
Our 41st Winner of the year: REVICH trained by Richard Spencer and ridden by Paul Mulrennan: The #ChesterTogether Handicap Stakes over 7.5f at Chester.
We think this tweet sums up this post race story!
Well 6 days ago, we were whooping at his 7f win under Tom Marquand, coming from last to first. Yesterday he and Paul Mulrennan popped out from his prime draw in 1 to lead from start to finish! The Racing Post report is easy reading: 'Made all, 2 lengths ahead going easily over 3f out, ridden and went further clear over 1f out, kept on well, always doing enough.'
It was a cracking ride by Paul, as he set the fractions perfectly and made it look very easy. On At The Races after the race he said: "He broke very well and after a furlong I got breather into him, but I never heard another horse!"

A third win at the track, with this one being a career best RPR of 103 and a Timeform highest rating of 106. We'll talk to Richard and look at the programme book for him, as a step up in company looks on the cards for him! Well done to his owners, who are having a fine time with him, picking up over £20,000 for these two race wins and we must, once again thank Chester, for the amazing hospitality and looking after our owners so well.
The same must be said this week of YORK, who have set the bar very high with the extra badge allocations and fabulous food this week. A very exciting day on the Knavesmire tomorrow, with GLENCADAM GLORY running in the £250,000 SKY BET EBOR. We finished 2nd with FLYMETOTHESTARS in 2017 and last year 4th with RAYMOND TUSK, which is not a bad record. To be in it is a treat so enjoy the day all the owners who are going and good luck!
