Shalfleet double at Lingfield


TRAINER Jeremy Noseda saddled back-to-back winners at Lingfield this afternoon to make it five victories from eight runs for Shalfleet in 2018.

Walk In The Sun and Abe Lincoln were both on target on an ice-cold afternoon at the Surrey track.

Walk In The Sun maintained his 100 per cent record with a second successive win in seven-furlong novice races.

In the hands of jockey Ryan Moore the son of Street Sense made just about every to record an emphatic seven-length success.

It will have been useful experience for the colt, who is learning with his racing.

Jeremy said: “It was a good performance from a horse with a future. 

“I am pleased for Walk In The Sun’s owners Phoenix Thoroughbred Ltd.

“We’ll give him a break now and look to bring him back in May. 

“I think we’ll see him delivering his full potential from midsummer onwards on the turf.”

The Noseda-Moore combination struck again half an later in the 10-furlong handicap.

The jockey was at his best as he brought Abe Lincoln with a sustained challenge down the straight.

He mastered Emenem in the closing strides to score by three-parts of a length.

It was an encouraging performance by the five-year-old who was stepping up in trip after scoring over seven furlongs last month.

Jeremy said: “I am delighted for Abe Lincoln’s owners Paul and Susan Roy – their faith and patience is being rewarded.

“Now that the horse has won at a mile and a quarter it increases our options for him going forward.

“It was another great ride from Ryan Moore. When he is on board it's like a football manager having Messi on his team-sheet. 

“You know you've got a man who can pull off the masterstrokes and turn things your way.”
