Trainer Keith Dalgleish and Maleficent Queen win at Ayr Racecourse

TRAINER Keith Dalgleish hailed his super filly Maleficent Queen, the 3-1 favourite, after she made it five wins from six runs when winning the £50,000 British Stallion Studs EBF Tennent’s Rothesay Stakes, a Listed Race over a mile and a quarter at Ayr’s Tennent’s Raceday last week.

Keith said: ”As soon as this race was announced I had it in mind for her. She won here last September and obviously likes the track and she win well again today.

“I’ll speak to the owner and we may go for a group race next and might put her up in trip to a mile and a half.”

For the second Ayr meeting in a row Irish trainer Adrian Keatley saddled a treble. He started the ball rolling when Nice Vintage (3-1 favourite), ridden by Kieren Fallon, won the one mile two furlong CCE Enterprises Handicap by three and a quarter lengths from Grand Canyon.

The second leg of the three timer saw Anonymous Lady (3-1 joint favourite), again ridden by Kieren Fallon, get up on the line to win the five furlong Jacks On Fire Handicap from Classy Anne. And the treble was completed by Millefiori (4-1), the mount of young Robbie Dolan in the Franklin & Sons Apprentice Handicap.

Adrian, dashing to board a private plane from Prestwick back to Ireland, said: “I thought we would do well today and it’s great to have another treble at Ayr – it’s certainly my lucky course and it’s great to have Kieren riding for me.”

The biggest price winner of the day was the Jim Goldie trained Lady Cordie in division two of the six furlong handicap. The 33-1 chance, ridden by Joe Doyle, held off Insolenceofoffice by a nose.
