A review of the action from Friday's meeting at York where Happy Power won the feature equinITy Ganton Stakes.

Feature falls to Power

Happy Power justified 7/4 favouritism in the feature equinITy technology Ganton Stakes at York,

Andrew Balding's charge was stepping up a mile and tracked the trailblazing Wadilsafa until the two furlong marker.

Silvestre De Sousa then asked him to put the race to bed, which he quickly did, having a length-and-a-quarter in hand of the long-time leader at the line.

The champion jockey said: "He's a nice horse who is going the right way. He's been waiting for this ground and he got the trip well."

Double delight for Carroll

Declan Carroll celebrated a 101/1 double at York on Friday courtesy of Music Seeker (16/1) and Shawaamekh (5/1 favourite).

The former stayed on strongly to land the Constant Security Handicap by a length under Cian Macredmond.

It was hard work too for Shawaamekh who had to survive a stewards' enquiry before being confirmed the winner of the Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Stakes.

He mastered the leader Right Action with over a furlong to run but drifted to the rail under David Nolan, hampering eventual runner-up Proud Archi.

He was bidding to provide Paul Mulrennan with hi 1000th career winner but the wait goes on after the officials left the placings unaltered.

Easterby on target with Hurstwood

Hurstwood continued Tim Easterby’s sizzling run of form by landing the opening Brittains Beverages British EBF Novice Stakes at York.

The trainer saddled a four-timer on Tuesday and he has a nice two-year-old on his hands in this son of Dark Angel who stayed on strongly to fend off Asmund by half-a-length, with the pair three-and-a-half lengths clear of My Kinday Day in third.

The winner carries the colours of David Armstrong and Easterby said: “David started out with horses with us and I trained the dam. This is a nice horse who will be fine on faster ground.

“He was a little unlucky at Carlisle last time and will come on again. He’ll definitely stay six furlongs. I have a nice bunch of two-year-olds."

Nicholls takes Rous prize

Amnaa returned to Adrian Nicholls' yard having landed the SFK Rous Selling Stakes.

The daughter of Bungleinthejungle was sent off a 22/1 chance and got the better of Lili Wen Fach (11/2) by half-a-length.

However she failed to attract a bid at the subsequent action. The third home, Speed Dating, does have a new trainer though having been claimed by Phil Middleton for 18,000 guineas.
