A copy book ride from Kerrin McEvoy saw the short priced favourite Up ‘N’ Rolling score a comfortable win in the National Jockeys Trust Handicap (2000m).

McEvoy settled Up ‘N’ Rolling in fifth position on the fence in the middle stakes and only had to ease around the leader Plymouth Road in the straight before holding off the challenge of the runner up Wahing Wah to record a one and a half lengths wins win with Admiral Jello running on for third.

McEvoy believes the Chris Waller trained Up ‘N’ Rolling could step up to Group 1 company in the Group 1 $750,000 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick on September 30.

  • 1st – Up ‘N’ Rolling
  • 2nd – Wahing Wah
  • 3rd – Admiral Jello

Classy gelding Embley has held on to beat a fast-finishing More To Gain in a photo finishing to Race 3 on Chelmsford Stakes Day.

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy was able to take up the running after Embley jumped well and the horse enjoyed a reasonably carefree run in transit on the rails.

Kicking clear when the field straightened, the High Chaparral gelding appeared to have the race easily won, but he was joined in the final 100m by More To Gain, who was perhaps unlucky not to get a favourable bob.

  • 1st – Embley
  • 2nd – More To Gain
  • 3rd – All But Gone

Race 4 (2:00pm) TAB Highway Handicap Results

A Hugh Bowman ride was the difference in this afternoon’s Highway Handicap, after My Tagoson poked clear in the final 100m to win the race.

Forced to settle within the field after jumping only fairly, Bowman weaved the horse between runners rounding into the final straight and held a position close to the rails.

Mustering a superior turn of foot, My Tagoson savaged the line to post a second-consecutive Highway Handicap win from Makfi Lass.

  • 1st – My Tagoson
  • 2nd – Makfi Lass
  • 3rd – Super Star Bob

  • 2nd – Spieth
  • 3rd – Nieta

Talented filly Formality is on track for a berth in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) after holding on to win the Group 2 Furious Stakes this afternoon.

Formality jumped well from a wide barrier this afternoon and was led towards the rails by jockey Kerrin McEvoy, eventually taking a position just outside early leader Joyfilly Ours.

Experiencing a good run in transit, Formality kicked clear when turning for home and mustered a strong-enough sprint to hold on and beat Champagne Cuddles on the line.

  • 1st – Formality
  • 2nd – Champagne Cuddles
  • 3rd – I Am Excited

Race 7 (3:50pm) Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes Results

Equine superstar Winx has continued her incredible run of form with another late win in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes this afternoon.

Classy stayer Red Excitement was led to the lead by jockey Josh Parr after jumping well and opened a big gap on his rivals; more than fifteen lengths on Winx at the bend.

Jockey Hugh Bowman remained calm on Winx upon arriving at the final straight and despite dropping his whip, had the horse underneath him to hit the line a half-length in the clear.

  • 1st – Winx
  • 2nd – Red Excitement
  • 3rd – Chocante

Popular gelding Happy Clapper has stormed home on the outside of a smart field to win the Group 2 Tramway Stakes (1400m) this afternoon.

Jockey Josh Adams was handed the ride on the Teofilo gelding for his first-up run this afternoon and the hoop delivered a gem of a ride on the horse leading into the final straight, before going for the whip at the perfect moment.

Tom Melbourne was caught wide without cover in transit and ran an eye-catching second in the Tramway Stakes, while Invincible Gem also overcame a luckless run to finish third.

  • 1st – Happy Clapper
  • 2nd – Tom Melbourne
  • 3rd – Invincible Gem

Race 9 (5:10pm) Schweppes Handicap Results

Washington Heights has justified his clear race favouritism with a tough run in the final race on Chelmsford Stakes Day.

The classy sprinter interestingly drifted in betting markets leading up to jump, but took a handy position within the field as Marenostro and Rocket Commander traded early blows on pace.

Holding a position on the rails leading into the final straight, the Commands gelding found the fore of the field with 200m and was joined late in the picture by a flying Dawn Wall, but produced another big kick to win the race by a head.

  • 1st – Washington Heights
  • 2nd – Dawn Wall
  • 3rd – Rocket Commander
