The Thousand Club

Paul Mulrennan, who began his riding career in the year 2000, rode the Michael Dods-trained

Camacho Chief to victory in the Lakeside Village Outlet Shopping Doncaster Handicap and, thereby, became the latest jockey to make the 1,000-winner mark. The 32-year-old Noth Yorkshire-based jockey enjoyed a flying start to the week after notching up a winner at Leicester on Monday and a double at Carlisle on Tuesday. He then scored his 999th goal at Hamilton the following day. He almost made the 1000 when narrowly beaten in a race at York on Saturday.


Worth her weight in ... ?

Carol Bartley notched up a second victory in the Queen Mother's Cup at York, a race for lady jockeys, this time aboard Arctic Fox. The East Ayrshire-based rider first tasted success on the Jim Goldie-trained Nanton in 2013 and clearly benefited from this experience. Traditionally the winning jockey gets her weight in champagne as a special prize – so it must the one occasion when the winner wants to see the needle on the scales move rapidly to the right when she jumps on the scales!


A Double for Charlie

At Chantilly yesterday Al Hilalee and Vintager provided Charlie Appleby with a Group race double. Having finished third in the Listed Fairway Stakes at Newmarket last time out, Al Hilalee was the 15-8 favourite for the Group Two Prix Hocquart and was soon dominating the race in the hands of James Doyle. There was a few anxious moments when it looked like the Ambivalent colt would be denied victory when Soft Light galloped up from the rear but Al Hilalee clung on by a neck. The Godolphin trainer now has a few important days ahead. Last year's Derby winner, Masar, leads his Royal Ascot team, with Barney Boy and Mythical Magic lining up in the first race of the day tomorrow, the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes.
