Aaim To Prosper

The eight-year-old previously won the marathon two mile, two furlong heritage handicap in 2010 and having not entered the winner’s enclosure since, was returned at 66/1 (£77.10 with totepool).

Partnered by Kieren Fallon, Aaim To Prosper raced prominently and stayed on well close home to score by half a length from the 7/1 favourite Countrywide Flame.

Successful trainer Brian Meehan said: “He won the race before, so why couldn’t he win it again?

“Although he hadn’t won since he won this race two years ago, he had been campaigned in Pattern and Stakes company.

“Kieren Fallon said when the horse ran here the last day that he would appreciate some cut in the ground and that has obviously made a huge difference.

“He is a good horse and good horses can always come back and do it again. This horse is all heart and has won today despite being 20lb higher than two years ago. He has been committed and stayed on well, as he did two years ago.

“Kieren has given him a wonderful ride,. He rode him here a fortnight ago and understands him.

“It is great for everyone at the yard and his owners who have always been very supportive.”

Kieren Fallon was enjoying a second victory in the Cesarewitch too, following on from Top Cees in 1999.

The jockey said: “Aaim To Prosper was off the bridle the whole way - even leaving the stalls, I was having to push and scrub to hold my position. He is as tough as nails and he really wanted it."

Countrywide Flame
BACK TO THE TIMBER FOR COUNTRYWIDE

John Quinn’s Triumph Hurdle hero Countrywide Flame just failed to deny history when second to Aaim To Prosper. None the less Quinn was pleased with his charge, who was sent off the 7/1 favourite.

Quinn said: “He’s run really well and I am really pleased - as pleased as one can be when coming second.

“The winner kept pulling out, he was always holding Countrywide Flame but were very pleased.

“We will either run in the Fighting Fifth (Newcastle) or the Bula Hurdle (Cheltenham) next.”

Jimmy Quinn, who rode the Haafhd gelding, added: “The winner had the ideal position all the way, and I half gave Kieren (Fallon) a lead and when we came to the top of the hill I thought I had him but Kieren’s mount (Aaim To Prosper) kept finding more and when I got to him he dug deep and found all the way to the line.

“My horse hasn’t stopped - he’s run a very strong race and he is a nice horse but we just met one on the day. Three times I have been second in this race now!”
