18 July 2017, UK ~ Ultimate Force (Tornado De Syrah) and David Turner put in a fine front-running performance to win The Royal Cavalry of Oman (0-50) Handicap on 18 July 2017, at Bath, winning by two lengths from Zayin Zamurai, with Senor Dublcheck a further three lengths behind in third.
The win gave owner-breeder, Heather Phillpott and trainer Peter Hammersley their second such success in four days, as Phillpott’s other horse, Unity Belle had won at Chelmsford City on Saturday.
A delighted Hammersley said: “He’s been working well at home all year and has been able to show his true running this afternoon. He’s had three runs on the All Weather and he just doesn’t like it, when he ran here two years ago he was just touched off by a nose by Senor Dublcheck.
“Dave’s given him a cracking ride today, when he’s in front, he’s quite happy to bowl along. I’m pleased with the way he stayed on, he wants a bit further and will probably come back here next month for the 0-60 Handicap over an extra three furlongs.”
ARO Racing Operations Executive Gemma Cobb commented: “This is the first of two single races to be run at Bath this year supported by long-term ARO sponsors, The Royal Cavalry of Oman, the next will be on Friday 4th August.
“The Royal Cavalry’s sponsorship, which they increased in 2016, got off to a successful start this season with six of eight races at our Taunton fixture, followed by our longest premier handicap, run over two miles, at Doncaster.”
“We always receive a great reception at Bath, and we thank them and the racecourse teams at Taunton, Doncaster, Newbury and Windsor for their support of the Royal Cavalry’s race sponsorship in 2017.”
