Becky Smith extends Lady Flat Championship lead with fine win at Beverley


Many congratulations to Becky Smith on tightening her grip on the ladies’ Flat Championship yesterday when winning the last at Beverley with PALINDROME for Marjorie Fife, bringing her season tally to 9, 2 clear of nearest rival Emily Easterby.

Detached by some way in the early stages, Palindrome made steady headway from 3 furlongs out to chase the leaders and switched left inside the final furlong to lead and win by a neck from Nigel Tinkler’s DUTCH COED and Samantha Pugh (having her first ride), with HARD TOFFEE (Serena Brotherton) just over a length 3rd and WHATWOULDYOUKNOW (Amie Waugh)  a further 2 lengths 4th.

Many congratulations to winning connections and huge thanks to Beverley Racecourse for their great support of amateur races this and every season.
