Almond Branches Out

Wrong Almond Branches
Almond Branches paid yet another compliment to prolific first-season sire Dutch Art as she swopped in the EBF 'Mullionmileanhour' Maiden Fillies' Stakes at Catterick.



Having troubled the judge in each of her first three starts, the George Moore-trained chestnut came back refreshed from a break to wear down long-time leader and 7-2 favourite Excelette for a short-head verdict under PJ McDonald.

It was a popular local triumph for farmer Jeremy Knox and his wife, Muriel, who are based just four miles from the racecourse at Streetlan.


Jeremy Knox said of the 15-2 shot: "To have our first winner at our local track is fantastic - we're chuffed to bits.


"I have the full brother who is going to Doncaster Sales, so this should have done him some good."


Sinai showed her appreciation for a drop in class as she proved too strong for 20-1 outsider Beechey's Beauty in the yorkshire-outdoors.co.uk Median Auction Maiden Stakes.

Purchased at the breeze-ups by her trainer Geoff Harker, the 6-1 winner coped with an undulating track in the hands of jockey Silvestre de Sousa to collect by two and a half lengths.


Harker said: "Silvestre said she didn't appreciate the course but hopefully she'll come on again.


"Her owner Hussain Nensey lives in India and I imagine she'll go back there for breeding purposes at some stage."
