Nick Alexander closes in on career-best season after double at Racing Post

The winners of the race were both ridden by conditional Bruce Lynn, according to Alexander. He expressed his satisfaction with the performance of both horses and added that they will be on career-high marks the following week.

Alexander expressed particular delight with Up Helly Aa King. He praised the horse’s ability to outperform younger competitors, noting that at 13 years old, it is impressive for a horse to win against opponents who are four, five, and six years younger.

Despite uncertainty about running him again next season, Alexander is tempted to do so, given the horse’s love for racing and his current form. However, Alexander mentioned the need to await the handicapper’s decision before making any plans.

Lynn faced a challenge when the saddle appeared to slip as they approached the final fence, causing him to struggle to maintain his balance. Alexander admitted feeling nervous about the situation and expressed uncertainty about the cause of the saddle issue.

Unfortunately, Alexander’s afternoon came to a disappointing end when Kellermann, one of two runners in the closing bumper for the trainer, broke down on the first circuit, resulting in the race being voided. It is worth noting that Racing Post provides a consolidated platform for the best offers.
