The powerful Snaith racing team dominated proceedings at a chilly Kenilworth racecourse on Wednesday afternoon.
With log leading trainer Justin away in Natal, it was left to brother Jonathan and father Chris to lead in the yard’s four winners (the yard also saddled three horses to finish second) on the mid-week card.


The Snaith quartet was kicked off when Perfect Symmetry scored to give his trainer a first two-year-old winner for the season when landing the second race of the day. A gelded son of Gimmethegreenlight (he is the spitting image of his L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate winning sire), Perfect Symmetry was a little unlucky when interfered at his previous outing when just over two lengths behind subsequent Somerset 1200 third Crown Guardian.

Perfect Symmetry’s win was a great result for owners Ken and Jane Truter, whose daughter Gina was on course to lead their winner in, who are also part-owners of third place finisher, and beaten favourite, Shadowing.

The Snaith bandwagon rolled on with the yard winning the last three races on Wednesday’s card. The hatrick of wins included stable mates The Boston Rose and Omega Force filling the first two places in the sixth race, an off the pace from progressive filly Talitha Borealis in the seventh race-downing another Snaith runner Konkola in the process, and the Alec and Gillian Foster owned Green Archer pouncing to win the eighth and final race.

 

Flashy two-year-old Star Angel, who benefitted from blinkers, made all to land the first race for trainer Joey Ramsden and owner Etienne Braun –despite being fractious in the starting stalls and keen going down to post. The What A Winter filly, one of two Wednesday winners for jockey Bernard Fayd’Herbe, was a first grey for her veteran owner since his talented galloper Blue Tiger.

Equus Champion Edict Of Nantes’ 3yo half-sister Dream Dancer also made an impression when finishing strongly to post a one and a quarter length maiden win over 1200m.
Like her G1 Investec Cape Derby/Daily News 2000 winning half-brother, Dream Dancer is conditioned by Brett Crawford. The latter had a double on the day when Valbonne flew up late to score the shortest of short head wins over a game Ready Steady Go.
