Ustath and Tyler Win Again.
OUR 67th WINNER OF 2020: USTATH trained by Roger Fell and ridden by Tyler Heard (-7): 'The Heed Your Hunch At Betway Handicap' over 6f at Southwell.
This morning it feels like a case of déjà vu writing this! 12 days ago, Ustath and Tyler won over 5f at Southwell and yesterday, up to 6f, they did it again, in fine style - this time by 1/1/4 lengths.
He broke well from stall 6 to take a slight lead, Tyler giving him the hurry up coming off the bend. He strode out well in the home straight to see off any challengers and the flashy chestnut this time had the winning line all to himself!

In his post race interview with Sky Sports Racing, Tyler said: "He loves the surface and enjoyed today; I felt like he just wasn't going to get beaten. He jumps out fast, has the speed and picks up well" Well done again and thank you Tyler!
Syndicate manager Mike says: "We think we can conclude that he liked the underfoot conditions - I called him the Fibresand Warrior, as he crossed the line! The race panned out perfectly and a good ride from Tyler. I was pleased to see him keep Ustath one horse width off the rail coming round the bend when it would have been easy to get sucked in on go on to the rail so, he'd obviously done his homework on how to ride round Southwell. The plan is to run again tomorrow under a 5lb penalty."
Congratulations to his owners once again. Tyler is back in the saddle tomorrow - can they bring up the hat-trick for them?
