A long trip to Cartmel Racecourse was made worthwhile when the Bannister’s SPEEDY CARGO won the 3 mile ‘Hadwins Motor Group Novices’ Handicap Chase’. The seven-year-old’s win was an incredibly satisfactory one for the Bannister family, with Nick and Michael Bannister owning the horse and jockey Harry Bannister riding him. However, it was also an incredibly exciting win for the entire Warren Greatrex Yard as it is the first victory to celebrate with our new sponsors 1account Age Verification.
SPEEDY CARGO ran a confident race and maintained a prominent position throughout the three-mile contest to secure his first ever win. It was his first appearance on a racecourse in 146 days, and he proved to be in very good form. He jumped well from start to finish and took the lead with five fences left to jump. He faced a challenge from WHATEVA NEXT in the run-in but we were delighted to see him show true determination and he crossed the finish line a neck ahead, with the third horse CIARABELLA finishing 10 lengths behind.
Well done to everyone involved and it is great to start the new season with such a satisfying result.
