Beverley report: Brazen Belle proves too hot for her rivals

Thu 11 Jun 2020

Brazen Belle justified favouritism in the Beverley Racecourse Thanks The NHS Maiden Auction Fillies’ Stakes for David O’Meara.

O’Meara has made a good start with his juveniles and was registering his third winner from just six runners.

Brazen Belle, a daughter of Great St Wilfrid winner Pepper Lane, used the rail to her advantage and despite looking as if she had a fight on her hands through two different challengers, the 5-2 favourite pulled out more to beat Miss Milby by a neck.

“It was her first day at school so understandably she was a bit green, but Danny (Tudhope) thought she won with a bit up her sleeve,” said O’Meara.

“She lugged a fair way off the rail so in the end it was grand that she won.

“She qualifies for two bonuses which is nice, so we’ll see where we go from here.

“We’ve got some nice two-year-olds and they’ve started off well.”

Magical Spirit looks a sprinter to follow given the way he shot clear to win the Pure Broadband Handicap.

Kevin Ryan’s four-year-old had won three of his 10 starts already and began this season on a mark of 82.

There were plenty in with chances on entering the final furlong, but the 7-2 favourite soon put the race to bed under Kevin Stott, beating Afandem by two and a quarter lengths.

“He’s progressed from last year, he’s a bit bigger and stronger,” said Stott.

“He travelled lovely, he was a bit slowly away but I got a lovely spot and a nice lead into it.

“When I wanted him to, he quickened away well and he did it with ease.”
