Brian Meehan will be the first to tell you that this season his horses have taken their time to blossom. But all of a sudden, after a bit of much needed sunshine, these horses are ripe and certainly producing the goods. The Manton based trainer has been sending out winners left right and centre towards the back end of July and here are just a few of them.
KITAABY looks to be a promising three year old when he secured back-to-back victories at Leicester in July. He returned to winning form just a month after his impressive win at Newbury. The well-bred son of Acclamation set off as favourite in the decent handicap and went on to win comfortably by a couple of lengths. He has now got a very tidy form for the season wining two from three starts.
The following day, Meehan sent out a slick double. JIMENEZ, another son of Acclamation, produced the goods at Sandown to break his maiden. The day got even better when MUTAWAKKED won the EBF Maiden Stakes at Newbury defying the Godolphin favourite DENINGY . The Kodiac colt looks to be a progressive two-year-old type and seems to have gained good experience from his two starts prior to this notable win.
We also saw NEWTON’S LAW back to winning ways. The five-year-old gelding by Ballylinch’s Lawman won nicely at Bath under Jordan Uys. He holds provisional Handicap entries at Brighton and Chelmsford over the next few days.
Another two year old to keep an eye on is STOP THE WAGES. She won by an imposing four lengths at Lingfield last Saturday to break her maiden. Stop The Wages made it a triple for sire Acclamation at Manton during July. The filly seems to be that of a bargain when purchased at Goffs UK HIT sale for only £24,000 by Sam Sangster for The Let’s Do Lunch Partnership.
We hope that the rest of the season is a fruitful as this for the team at Manton. Check out our morning at Manton video by following the link below…
