MOVE IN TIME CAN SCORE AGAIN WHILE THE GROUND IS RIDING QUICK

FIRE LEOPARD
(Thirsk, 17 July)

Hadn’t beaten a rival home on her previous two starts but showed a very willing attitude to repel the persistent challenge of Vision Clear through the final furlong.

The hood was back on and David O’Meara’s filly may have turned the corner this summer, although consistency has never been Fire Leopard’s strong suit.

HAJJAM
(Doncaster, 19 July)

David O’Meara has the four-year-old in peak form and this was another solid performance.

Danny Tudhope produced Hajjam with a very threatening run but his mount flattened out in the final 100 yards, giving best to Sir Michael Stoute’s progressive Georgian Manor and favourite Reach High.

The first three pulled clear and although Hajjam will continue to be vulnerable to these improving three-year-olds, there are still good handicaps to be won over his specialist 7f trip.

MOVE IN TIME
(Pontefract, 20 July)

Still looks as sprightly as ever at the age of ten and Paul Midgley continues to prove a master with these older sprinters.

Move In Time was a little unlucky in this Class 3 sprint won by Watchable, with Dougie Costello finding himself short of room down on the rail at a crucial stage.

Move In Time rattled home to grab second spot and the race was run in a very respectable time.

A winner earlier this season at Newmarket (good record at HQ), Move In Time can score again while the ground is riding quick.

RUM LAD
(Ripon, 21 July)

Built on a promising debut fourth to Woodside Wonder at Hamilton with a fast-finishing third in this 5f  novice stakes.

John Quinn’s colt looks capable of landing a similar event and is the type to make up into a capable handicapper as his career progresses.

DAAWY
(Ripon, 21 July)

There was reportedly no jar in the watered track and this was much better from Daawy following two poor efforts on rattling fast ground.

David O’Meara’s gelding had won on a yielding surface for previous trainer William Haggas and he was the only horse to get anywhere near resolute galloper Winged Spur at the finish.

REMEMBER THE DAYS
(Ayr, 23 July)

Split a couple of smart three-year-olds, sticking to his task once Glasses Up swept past a furlong from home to finish a clear-cut runner-up.

Remember The Days didn’t appear to stay 12 furlongs at York on his previous start and the steady early pace here would not have suited him.

Jedd O’Keefe will be keen to avoid three-year-olds if possible in the next few weeks.
