Screen Shot 2018-08-30 at 07.31.43A winner of a restricted point in June, Midnight Queen was in the process of throwing down a strong challenge on her rules return at Southwell last month, only to fall at the third-last.

Given plenty of time to get over that, she made her third chasing start a winning one with a game display yesterday, coming from the clouds under a never-say-die ride from Richard Patrick to get up in the final strides, a result that hadn’t looked at all likely when ridden along and last with a circuit to go!

Stamina is clearly her forte and she could return to the course for another conditional jockeys’ contest over the same trip on the 10th, as otherwise there is very little for her until mid-October.
