Yarmouth double keeps the ball rolling

GRAND CANAL and Craigburn kept the winners' flowing with a double at Yarmouth on Wednesday afternoon.

The former landed the ten-furlong handicap having been narrowly beaten at Salisbury ten days earlier.

It was pretty straightforward for Patrick Chau's son of Australia and he ran out a ready winner by six and a half lengths under Jack Mitchell.

Jack also was aboard Craigburn who put a bad run at Lingfield firmly in the past with a solid win in the six furlong handicap. 

He travelled smoothly throughout and picked up well to win by a length and three quarters. 

Tom said: "Grand Canal looks ready for the step up to a mile and a half and we'll look to do that under a penalty in the next week as long as he comes out of this ok. It's great to get a win for owner Patrick Chau.

"Everything went wrong for Craigburn at Lingfield but he has bounced back and done it nicely."

This double came hot on the heels of Fairy Dust's victory at Windsor on Monday and a great effort by Soldierpoy in the Super Sprint at Newbury. The horses are in great form and it's a testament to all the hard-working team at home.
