Le Musee is victorious at Autumn Raceday
Le Musee was an impressive winner of the feature race at Perth Racecourse today (Monday 9 September), coming first in the ROA: A Voice For Racehorse Owners Handicap Chase over 2m 4f.
Trained in Devon by Nigel Hawke, the 5-2 chance stormed home in the hands of David Noonan to beat Boy’s On Tour by twelve lengths.
Noonan said: “I was giving him a squeeze turning out of the back straight but he picked up well. We know he stays as he has won at three miles over hurdles and I gave him a nice sight of the fences today.
“He’s jumped very well and that was just his fourth run over fences and his first handicap. I’d say he is horse with a bright future.”
Rose Dobbin struck with her first runner since April when Lady London, the 9-1 outsider of three runners, landed the Rewarding Ownership With The ROA Novices’ Handicap Chase.
“We had an awful time but hopefully we have turned the corner and I’m really pleased for the owners as they have been amazingly supportive,” the Northumberland trainer said.
Wise Coco landed a proper gamble for in-form Alistair Whillans in the TGO Creative Design, Print And Web Handicap Hurdle.
Backed from 7-1 into 2-1 favourite, she slammed Touchedbyanangel by five-lengths for conditional rider Danny McMenemin.
Next in the racing calendar is Perth’s Glorious Finale. Closing the season in style, the double header takes place on Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 September.
