Diamond Dougal and David Egan
Before the Off

ANOTHER SEPTEMBER WIN FOR DIAMOND DOUGAL

Diamond Dougal did his owners proud when taking the Class 2 Nursery Handicap at Haydock Park on ground classed as heavy.

It was a step up in grade for the gelding, but Mick got it right in that off a light weight (8st 2lb) with jockey David Egan's 3lb claim on testing ground, it was worth "having a go".

David rode a very intelligent race, taking his time early on, but then easing into the race about 2f out, when he couldnt believe how well he was going.

Diamond Dougal went clear of the field and won by a cosy 2 1/2 lengths.

It was a nice race for the syndicate to win with a £9,000 first prize.
