Owners Ken and Debbie Snell sampled the delights of Deauville on 6th when their mare NIGHT LILY contested the Listed race over 7 and a half furlongs on the polytrack. Lily was drawn wide and jockey Ioritz Mendizabal could not get her covered up as she usually likes and was more prominent than usual turning into the straight. She still looked like winning a furlong out but the field came at her and she deadheated for third with the distances being a short head and a short neck! This was the third time Lily has been involved in tight finishes in Listed races and she more than deserves to win one. Lily will continue to run on the all-weather this winter.

Fairly quiet in terms of runners at the moment. Most of the stalwarts have just returned from breaks including EDINBURGH KNIGHT and NELSON'S BOUNTY.

The new two year olds are now cantering nicely and some to note are Jim Kinnear's GLOBAL LEADER, who replaces CALEDONIAN SPRING, sold to Hong Kong. Stapleford Racing's lovely filly KROSSKINA and their homebred SPIRIT MAN and Ken Snell's TRUE SPIRIT.
