Update from event hosts: Quest Festival has some amazing opportunities for traders, exhibitors and advertisers to reach a very well-targeted demographic at this year’s festival from 24th-27th July 2014 at Newton Abbot Racecourse.
Former jump jockey turned trainer Seamus Durack sent out 5/4 favourite BOHEMIANRHAPSODY from his base at Baydon in Wiltshire to land The Visit Newton Abbot Racecourse On Facebook Maiden Hurdle Race 2m 3f. The opener was run at a respectable gallop and the winner and his main rival in the market Maxi Chop were well clear and locked together until the favourites stamina kicked in on the run-in enabling him to win by half a length.
Second of Three Fixtures at Newton Abbot this Month
Newton Abbot stages its second meeting of the month on Monday with a seven-race card that gets underway at 2.10pm with the At The Races Virgin 534 Novices’ Hurdle.
The big race of the afternoon is the third, the Class 3 Paignton Zoo Handicap Chase over an extended two miles and five furlongs and the SIS Bringing Betting To Life Novices´ Handicap Hurdle brings the card to a close at 5.10pm.
2.15: Spa Hill won a bumper in Ireland and was placed there four times he makes his debut here for new connections and could run into a place. It is a tight call between Paul Nicholls Maxi Chop who certainly has the ability to take this contest but questions must be asked after pulling up last time, therefore BOHEMIANRHAPSODY is our selection he has the better recent form having finished a close fourth at Worcester last month.
