Ground goes against Malham Tarn Cove at Carlisle Steph Hollinshead Racing

The ground went against Malham Tarn Cove (Heeraat x Spirit Of Rosanna) yesterday (Monday 17th June 2024) in the 2.30pm ‘Euro2024 Daily Giveaways On Handicap’ (Div I), (Class 6), (0-60, 3yo+) over 6 furlongs on soft ground at Carlislenfor owner Mr Jim Holcombe.

Having recorded two impressive runs in May, including a victory at Bath on good ground, Malham ridden by Dougie Costello struggled on the soft ground at Carlisle after briefly leading just under 2 furlongs out before weakening inside the final furlong to finish 6th.

“Mally ran a decent race but on that type of ground struggled over a stiff 6 furlongs and consequently struggled to get home. He ideally needs good ground or if on the soft side a drop back in trip to 5 furlongs. We’re really happy though with his start to the season and will find another suitable race soon”, said Steph.
