Victories for Marilyn at Newmarket on Friday and Hackney Road at Doncaster on Saturday gave indication to followers of Chris Wall that this is the time of the year when the shrewd Newmarket trainer excels and July is invariably a month when he is at his most potent.
The Induna Stable handler has gained a reputation for knowing exactly what grade of horse he has at his disposal and placing them accordingly and know doubt his current total of eight wins will be swelling considerably in the coming weeks.
Star of the show right now is First Sitting who gained a second successive victory in the Listed Festival Stakes at Goodwood in May when beating Autocratic half a length and could well be taking up a similar entry at Sandown on Friday or at Newbury later in the month and is worthy of close inspection.
Marilyn completed a hat trick at headquarters on Friday night and could well have more to come and Saturday’s Doncaster scorer Hackney Road is another who could follow suit.
Chris has plenty of ammunition in his stable on Newmarket’s Fordham Road and kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about those he hopes can take him to greater heights in the coming months.
