Two winners at Lingfield
It was Portman At The Double thanks to Mancini (Laurence Bellman) and Ashazuri (RWH Partneship) both ridden by Richard Kingscote.
Mancini is two wins from two runs this season and did not have to be overly exerted to outstay these rivals at his first attempt at 2 miles on ground softer than ideal for him.
Ashazuri’s brother Pasaka Boy was 3rd in the Derby Trial here some years ago so it made for a lovely day for her owner breeders. She really toughed it out gamely and it made up for her very close defeat recently at Brighton after an equally gutsy performance.
