|On a track rated a slow 8 but racing fair, with winners coming from all positions, punters enjoyed a good battle with Tatts.
Good to see top apprentice jockey Jason Maskiell up and about again riding winners, the thing that he does best.
His first ride back was on the debutant Apache Son and both the horse and rider turned in outstanding efforts to win after a chequered start which cost the first starter around 4 lengths and had him settling a distant last after a couple of hundred metres.
He then worked steadily into the race before running down the likely winner Memo to win by a length, the third horse Bay Of Fire was a further 7 lengths away, the winner was trained by Vicki Rhind.
We did note this horse as a coming winner from the previous Longford Trials.
Trainer Leon Wells continued his good run with a double coming from Key Of The Nile in the Bill Dunstone Memorial BM68 and Esca inthe E (Ted Cox)MemorialCl.1.
The most sucessful jockey on the day was Kelvin Sanderson with a winning double on Vow Of Silence
trained by Adam Trinder & the smart Ladali trained by George Blacker.
Lady Lynette's half brother Rapscallion broke through in the opening race for top trainers Team Brunton & jockey Anthony Darmanin.
Our next meeting is on 5th August.
