Papa Cocktail gets 2yos off the mark
PAPA Cocktail was the team's first 2yo winner of the season with an emphatic success in the 7f Novice at Haydock on Saturday evening.
The son of Churchill, owned by Khalifa Dasmal, had finished third in a compeitive novice event at Yarmouth on debut and had little trouble getting his head in front on this occasion.
Ridden by Jack Mitchell, Papa Cocktail was always well-positioned and picked up nicely to win comfortably by a length and three quarters.
Tom said: "He is a colt we have always liked a lot. He ran well at Yarmouth and did the job well today. Hopefully he can go up in grade now and will be a nice colt for us."
