Simon Walker wins Amateur Cambridgeshire with Bubble And Squeak for Sylvester Kirk


After a strong entry of 26, somewhat disappointingly only 7 went to post for the inaugural running of the Amateur Cambridgeshire at Newmarket over 1m 1f on the Rowley Mile on Saturday 22nd September thanks to a drying week and good to firm ground, with rain not arriving until the raceday.

This was Cesarewitch Trial Day and also 32Red Newmarket Open Weekend and the wet weather did nothing to dampen the atmosphere, particularly with our own Hayley Moore choosing our race for her part in the annual Commentary Competition in aid of the Open Weekend’s charities which include Racing Welfare.
Participants’ Just Giving fundraising pages are open until Sunday 30th September with the winner – the participant who has raised the most money – to be announced next month. For more information on how to donate, please visit

Well done champion amateur Simon Walker on success for Sylvester Kirk with BUBBLE AND SQUEAK.  Alex Ferguson on TENOR made the running until relinquishing the lead to Becky Smith on RED CHARMER 3 furlongs out and a great finish ensuing.  Simon Walker and BUBBLE AND SQUEAK headed them inside the final furlong to stay on strongly and win by a length, with RED CHARMER 2nd, Serena Brotherton and Ed Walker’s I KNOW YOUR LIMIT 3rd and Siobhan Doolan 4th with Paul Cole’s ROTHERWICK.

Many congratulations to winning connections and great thanks to Newmarket Executive and sponsors CJ Murfitt Ltd for their support which is greatly appreciated with this exciting new fixture now a welcome addition to our autumn calendar.
