Goat Makes Up Ground In Racing League

It will be a neck-and-neck battle to the finish line next Thursday at the final meeting of The Racing League at Newcastle, with Team Thoroughbid leading by a mere four points (321) after Thursday's penultimate meeting at Lingfield.

Goat Racing-comprising Newmarket trainers Charlie Fellowes, Hugo Palmer, Tom Clover and George Scott-cut into Team Thoroughbid's lead with two wins at Lingfield, both with the team's reserve rider Louis Steward in the saddle. The horses were the Palmer-trained Red October (Ire) (Dawn Approach {Ire}) and the Fellowes-trained Billhilly (Ger) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), the latter of which won another Racing League event two weeks ago.

Steward told Sky Sports Racing: “I'm delighted for the horse, and delighted for Charlie and the team, everyone at home and the owners. They've done such a good job with this horse, just to revive his career. It's so good to see, and great to be on his back today.”

Steward now sits in joint-first with Hayley Turner in the Racing League jockeys' standings.

Team Thoroughbid had one win on Thursday thanks to the Richard Hannon-trained and Sean Levey-ridden Typhoon Ten (Ire) (Slade Power {Ire}).
