'Talented' Bournville catches the eye at Newcastle

Sun 4 Mar 2018

Bournville "has plenty of options available to her" after she preserved her unbeaten record at Newcastle on Saturday.

Karl Burke's four-year-old filly looked well above average when she breezed clear as the 4-7 favourite in a 'jumpers' bumper'.

That performance was even more creditable as she lost many lengths after a slow start.

Connections of Bournville, who is co-owned by racing syndicate OnToAWinner, intimated after her second Newcastle triumph that she could head to Aintree in April before possibly running on the Flat.

A statement posted on read: "The pace was slow throughout and Henry (Brooke) was happy to keep her at the back of the field for the majority of the race.

"On the turn into the home straight, she began to easily move through the field and it was just a matter of when Henry wanted to take it up.

"Henry pressed 'go' and she showed a fantastic turn of foot and went on to win by four lengths with a further 12 lengths back to third place.

"She is clearly talented and has her own ideas. She now has plenty of options available to her over the coming months. Her owners have a lot to look forward to."
