Haughty Hats victory for Bruce Lynn at Catterick
Catterick Ladies Evening on 12th August opened with the Haughty Hats Amateur Riders Handicap with 9 runners going to post including Sir Mark Prescott’s 11/10 hot favourite CLIFF FACE ridden by Serena Brotherton.
As the race developed, Cliff Face took it up inside the final furlong only to be headed late on by NEUF DES COEURS and Bruce Lynn who came from last to first! Neuf Des Couers kept on to win by a length and a quarter, with Cliff Face 2nd and Molly King winning the battle for 3rd with SHIRATAKI getting the better of Harriet Dukes (neck) and Hugo Hunt (neck 5th).
Many congratulations to Hawick’s 16 year old Bruce with his 2nd career success (2 wins in a week) from a total of only 3 rides for Iain Jardine. He is certainly making a name for himself. Congratulations to all winning connections.
