Flying Pursuit

Tim Easterby's Flying Pursuit was disappointing on his last appearance at Hamilton a week previous, but ploughed a lone furrow up the Knavesmire and could be called the winner some way from home.

Al Qahwa did his best to close the gap deep inside the last of six furlongs, but Flying Pursuit passed the post two lengths to the good under apprentice Rachel Richardson, much to the delight of the band of owners that make up the Ontoawinner syndicate.

Easterby said: "He's a good little horse, but the ground is the key to him. He loves a bit of cut.

"He was disappointing at Hamilton the other day, he just didn't race at all for whatever reason.

"Rachel gave him a good ride and we'll look towards Ayr (Ayr Gold Cup)."
