Fakenham Horse Racing Recap – 30 May 2015


Fakenham Racecourse managed to dry out after early rain, so the going was good (good to firm in places). A compact schedule saw Fakenham deliver six UK horse racing results yesterday (Sunday 30 May). Incredibly, not one favourite managed to win.

Mountain Fighter battled to victory at 11/4 in the 14:30 Maiden Hurdle, beating All Together in second place, also at 11/4. First and second also managed to share odds in the 15:00 Handicap Chase, this time at 10/1. Troubled proved to be the victor ahead of Royaume Bleu.

Benevolent emerged as 7/2 winner in the 15:30 Handicap Chase, with extreme 33/1 long-shot Izbushka claiming the crown in the 16:00 Novices Handicap Hurdle.

Red Seventy emerged next to win the 16:30 Handicap Chase at 5/2. Occasionally Yours then capped the day off with a 5/1 win in the 17:00 Lady Amateur Riders Handicap Hurdle. Volcanic Jack could only finish third (11/4F).
