The in-form son of Ashaawes is back this Friday for another crack at his 3rd career victory. He is fit and well and just has a bit of a tricky draw to overcome, but with Muzi Yeni retaining the ride he will be given every chance. Final field below:

It doesn’t get closer than this, Whiteleaf Hills goes down a “short-head” in 2nd, in the 4th Race at Fairview Racecourse today. Muzi Yeni gave him every chance and he should win again soon.

Great ride by Muzi Yeni, to finally get the win. Well done to trainer Gavin Smith and breeder James Armitage. Great to see a delighted Hollywoodbets EC Team at the course to lead him in.
