Seprani – Nearside
The three time Italian Group 1 winner, Dylan Mouth had his first win in Britain on Saturday, landing the Old Newton Cup at odds of 25-1. The six-year-old was carrying top weight, when he stormed clear in the final furlong of the race to land the £100,000 prize by 2 ¼ lengths to the Mark Johnston trained Soldier In Action.
The winning jockey Harry Bentley said: “He is a proper horse, he’s rated 104 for a reason. Off top weight there’s a bit of a worry that he’s in no man’s land but he has done everything very well today.
“He’s a big, solid horse so the weight’s not been a problem. I got a good run through, I was in the last quarter of the field but they went nice gallop up front which helped us. It all went smoothly.”
Dylan Mouth has come out of the race well and holds an entry in the upcoming Tattersalls July Sale on Friday 14th July.
The first week of July is a busy one with Prestige Place sending out plenty of runners across the week.

The first runner of the week, Omneeya ran in the 8.30pm at Windsor Racecourse. The daughter of Frankel had been dropped back in trip to six furlongs with all her previous starts coming over seven. The drop back in trip suited Omneeya, who was narrowly denied the race and finished a gallant third.

Prestige Place sent out three runners on Wednesday 22nd June. The first of the three runners, Aljazzi headed to Royal Ascot for day two of the five day meeting. The final two runners Capla Temptress and Do You Know headed over to Chelmsford for their evening meeting on the all-weather.
Aljazzi finished an honourable second place in the Group 2 Duke of Cambridgeshire stake, beaten by three quarter lengths to the Gregory Benoist trained Qemah. Marco thought dropping back to a mile would be her best trip and was extremely impressed with her performance.
Aljazzi’s next start might be in the US – perhaps the Beverly D Stakes in August. She is a filly that needs time between races and, having had a hard race, we’ll be in no rush to run her again.
Capla Temptress made her racecourse debut at Chelmsford in the Novice Auction Stakes at 6.10pm on Wednesday 21st June. The daughter of Lope De Vega jumped well but was held up at the start, started making headway one furlong out she took the race by a nose to the Jamie Osbourne trained Alifax.
The filly made an impressive winning debut for her owners Capla Developments & Les Boyer. Capla Temptress has come out of the race well and we are hoping to see her on the racecourse again soon.

Prestige Place sends out three runners over the course of the week, the first runner, Aljazzi runs in the Group 2 Duke of Cambridgeshire Stakes on the second day of the meeting. The daughter of Shamardal is in good form going in to the race and the firm ground will be no problem for her. It’s looking to be a tough race, with a lot of good fillies set to take part, but Marco is hopefully of a good run from the filly who is now a three-time winner, and will be partnered on the day by Adam Kirby.
The final two runners will take there chances on the third day of the meeting. Indian Dandy and Omran are both running in the Britannia stakes (Heritage handicap). Indian Dandy is in great form and the fast ground is ideal for him. He will be partnered by Tom Queally who rode him to victory in his last win at Yarmouth Racecourse. Indian Dandy has proved to be very straightforward and uncomplicated to train.
Omran has come out of his last start at Newmarket Racecourse very well and will enjoy the straight course at Ascot. He would ideally want more give in the ground but the strong pace of the race should suit him. Omran will be ridden by Daniel Muscutt and is the winner of two races to date.
