Alchemystique catches the eye at Wolverhampton

Alchemystique catches the eye at Wolverhampton Steph Hollinshead Racing

Alchemstique (Authorized x Nice To Know) returned to racing on the all-weather at Wolverhampton yesterday (Tuesday 16th January 2024), finishing second in the ‘Build Your Acca With BetUK Handicap’ Class 6 for 4YO plus over 1 mile 5 furlongs and 219 yards.

Held up at the rear until coming round the final bend, Misty under a fine and patient ride from Grace McEntee made headway 1 furlong out and ran on well to finish ¾ length behind the winner Taxiing.

The Racing Post were certainly impressed by the run marking her performance as the ‘eyecatcher’ of the card for the day.

“Really pleased with that run from Misty and Grace gave her a peach of a ride. You have to ride her patiently and present her at the right time to maximise her pace at the end of the race. She’s had a few months rest and certainly benefitted from that, so we’ll look to find her another suitable race soon and hopefully get her head in front,” said Steph.
