The weather might have been cool and breezy, but the going was good (good to firm in places) on much of Wetherby’s course on Thursday (28 May). Below are the seven UK horse racing results and payouts from Wetherby.
Starting in the early evening, the 17:40 Mares Novices Hurdle saw a 1/4 win for favourite Promanco. Rathlin Rose then won as 4/7 favourite in the 18:10 Novices Chase. A third win followed for the favourites, with 1/2 Ballykan claiming the 18:45 Novices Hurdle.
Trackside bookies at last caught a break when Everylasting won the 19:20 Handicap Chase at 5/1. Politeness then showed no mercy by winning the 19:55 Handicap Hurdle at 8/1.
