Tyger Flies Home

Thu 08 Dec 2022

WINNER 121 OF 2022: TYGER BAY, trained by Conrad Allen and ridden by Tyler Heard (-3): The feature 'BetUK's Acca Club 5 Free Bet Handicap' over 6f at Lingfield.

Drawn in 1, he wasn't the quickest away, so had to settle into midfield. Coming around the home bend, he had 3 to 4 lengths to find to catch the leaders. Making headway out wide coming to the 1 furlong pole, he made a strong run under pressure to lead in the final strides; winning by a head.

"Here comes Tyger Bay on the outside, to get up - well timed!" Watch the full race replay here: https://www.attheraces.com/racecard/Lingfield/07-December-2022/1325

Timeform rated it as a joint career best p88, saying: "Confirmed recent promise down slightly in grade to resume winning ways, a reproduction of his best proving sufficient; mid-field, ridden over 2f out, headed over 1f out, led close home.”

The Racing Post made him their Star Performer from the card, saying: "Star performer: Tyger Bay (1.25) swooped late to win the feature race." and they reported: 

'Middleham on top'

Lingfield's feature 6f handicap went in favour of Middleham Park's Tyger Bay, who snatched victory by a head under 3lb claimer Tyler Heard for trainer Conrad Allen. Heard said: "It was a decent race and worked out well for him. They went a good gallop and he could quicken off that and stays well, so it couldn't have gone any better. It's great to get a first success with Conrad Allen and also another winner for Middleham Park. I had a few for them as a 7lb claimer, and it's great to deliver another win."

Tyler said in his Sky Sports Racing interview: "I liked him at Kempton. I was a bit worried about getting stuck on the fence, but I was able to get him out and he won going away. He is tough and I am delighted.”

Syndicate manager Tim says: "Well done to his owners and Tyler, who gave him a great ride, I thought that he nailed it from start to finish. Another horse that we offered in our Black Friday share promotion to have come out and won since!”
