Tough Tyger!

Mon 29 Apr 2024

WINNER 29 OF 2024: TYGER BAY, trained by Conrad Allen and ridden by Joe Leavy (-5): The 'Betting.Bet Betting Offers Handicap' over 5.5f at Bath.

With a 4lb penalty from his win at Catterick (6f) on Thursday, he was chalked up as favourite, but did have a wide draw in 9 to contend with.

Initially sitting wide of the 13 runner field, he managed to go forward to claim a midfield position, but in touch with the leaders. Making good headway 2f out, he took the lead coming to the final furlong and stayed on well, to win by 1 and a 1/4 lengths.

His 11th career win and the 7th in our silks.

"Tyger Bay toughs it out to win." Watch the full race replay here:

There was no post race coverage by Sky Sports Racing, but Joe did tell us: "Tyger Bay was fantastic again today. He has really sorted himself out at the start and it is making a big difference. I tried to sit as long as I could and when the time came, I asked him to put the race to bed and he quickened to the line."

Timeform rated it as a career best 91+ performance, saying: "Turned out again quickly under a penalty, proved at least as good as ever to follow up from Catterick; broke well, never far away, travelled smoothly, produced to lead over 1f out, pushed out; goes well on ground softer than good on turf and will continue to give a good account.”

Syndicate manager Tim says: "What a tough horse he is! Winning just 4 days ago and backing that up, putting in a career best Timeform performance, is superb. All credit to Conrad and thanks to Joe for a great ride. Congratulations to his lucky owners on their second win within a week! He contributed to 5 winners in our silks; giving us a 25% strike rate last week."
