Ustath Loves Southwell!
Sun 22 Jan 2023
WINNER 4 OF 2023: USTATH, trained by Roger Fell and ridden by Sam James: The 'Huge Daily Boosts Only At BetUK Classified Stakes' over 6f at Southwell.
He was 2nd over 5 furlongs at the track yesterday and the keen eyed, fancied him to go one better, making him favourite. He always breaks well and did so once again, from stall 1 and is easy to spot regardless, with his 4 white socks and blaze!
He bowled along in front and coming to the 2 pole, was still cruising, as the field in behind were off the bridle. Sam asked him to quicken and he was challenged from either side, but kept on well inside the final furlong, to win by a length.

Timeform rated it as a t59 , saying: "Back up in trip, went one better than in a similar race to this just over 24 hours previously, clearly showing no ill effects; made all, travelled best, ridden over 1f out, kept on."
Syndicate manager Mike says: "Well done to all his owners, lovely to see him win again and I was delighted to be there to give him plenty of pats! The flashy chestnut has been a fun horse for his owners since we bought him from the Owen Burrows yard - this was his 7th career win. Three on the fibresand and 2 on the tapeta, he just loves Southwell! Thanks to Sam, to Roger and we wish Lucy, who led Ustath up, the very best as she leaves to have her baby."
