TAKING TWO-YEAR-OLD WINNER FOR TAGULA
A return to easier ground saw GOOD NIGHT MR TOM (Tagula) gain his maiden victory in the six furlong nursery at Hamilton.
The ground was described as good to soft, as it was at Carlisle in June when the Mark Johnston-trained juvenile finished third. Hong Kong jockey CY Ho rode the bay to make all the running, asking him to quicken over a furlong out and his mount obliged, staying on strongly to win by two lengths.
Good Night Mr Tom was bred by Peter Molony and is owned by Paul and Clare Rooney. Bought by Kevin Ross as a yearling for £65,000, he is a full-brother to two-time winner Regal Gait (Tagula).
