KNUCKLEBALL TAKES THE GUINEAS TRIAL

R6 (2) Knuckleball Simons Guineas Trial

The favourites went AWOL at Borrowdale Park on Sunday, but Knuckleball, although not outright favourite, was at least strongly fancied in the Guineas Trial,  a 1600m handicap for three-year-olds.

The previously unbeaten Edward The Seventh failed to catch the front running Knuckleball, having to settle for 1.50 lengths off the winner. Night Of Speed, third, was four lengths back.

By Curved Ball (AUS), Knuckleball was bred by Clifton Stud and is owned by Mr V. Gappah, Mr R.H.S. and Mrs P. Beattie, and Mr D.H. and Mrs J.L. Cocksedge. Randall Simons was riding for Amy Bronkhorst.

Congratulations to the winning connections.
