From the seven races held at Hexham Racecourse, six of the UK horse racing results and payouts were dominated by favourites. Only Flaming Thistle at 10/1 managed to give fans a surprise outcome on Tuesday 24 March. The going was good to soft and the weather conditions were bight but cloudy.
From the moment the 14:30 Novices Hurdle began, Cyrus Darius (2/7) launched an afternoon for backing favourites – horse racing is rarely so predictable. Onenightinvienna then kept the streak going with a victory in the 15:00 Novices Hurdle at 4/9.
After Flaming Thistle’s (10/1) unexpected win in the 15:35, it was time for Palm Grey (3/1) to secure another win for the favourites in the 16:10. A streak began once more when Better B Quick (11/4) took home the 16:45. Ten Trees (7/4) then won the 17:15 before Kara Tara (11/4) concluded the afternoon with a win in the 17:45.
