It’s The Life Of Brians as Ming Dynasty wins for Ellison and Hughes
MING DYNASTY impressed under former champion jockey Brian Hughes in the feature race at Perth’s Horizon Parking Raceday on Sunday.
Trained by Brian Ellison, the 7/4 favourite made a lot of the running before seeing off Duke Of Navan by three and a half lengths in the Horizon Parking Manage Over 3000 Carparks Handicap Chase.
Hughes said: “He jumps so well that I just let him roll along in front and he’s fairly bounded away. It was good ground when he won at Bangor and this was probably soft enough for him. I’d say he should be the type to keep on the go during the summer.”
Langholm trainer James Ewart was on the mark with Jude Et Parti in the Event Parking With Horizon Parking Novices’ Handicap Chase.
The six and a half length winner was running for the first time since changing hands for £20,000 at Doncaster Sales in May this year.
Ewart said: “We’ve had him a while but he had a dirty nose and we had to give him a course of antibiotics. He’s fine now and I’m delighted he’s won on debut for the yard as I think he could be a lovely fun horse.”
