The Tyger Roars
WINNER 56 OF 2022: TYGER BAY, trained by Conrad Allen and ridden by Neil Callan: The feature 'Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap' over 6f at Lingfield.
Neil steadied him at the start, as the leaders sped along at the head of the field - but he was never far away. Pushed along as they came around the home bend, he made steady headway on the outer coming into the straight. Running on well, he took the lead inside the final furlong, with Neil having time to look over his shoulder for any challengers, going clear to win readily, by 2 and a 1/2 lengths.

Timeform rated it as a career best performance of p89 and say: "Got back on the up after 5 weeks off, his career one of gradualy progression over the last 18 months or so; held up, pushed along over 2f out, led inside final 1f, well on top finish."
Neil said in his Sky Sports Racing interview: "He was a bit keen early on, so I dropped him in and this suited him perfectly, as he was able to pick them off. I was confident that he would win today!”
Syndicate manager Tim says: "A great ride by Neil there to judge the pace perfectly and to come swooping down the outside. His second win for us since we bought him and in fact yesterday, he won half his purchase price in prize money! Timeform have rated this as a career best, so congratulations to his owners and well done to Conrad and his team.”
