Battle Of The Nile Strikes On Nursery Debut

Battle Of The Nile wins the Cazoo Nursery Handicap (Div I) at Wolverhampton, 17th August.

Upon nursery debut the two-year-old son of Havana Gold won comfortably under a lovely ride from champion jockey Oisin Murphy. Initially slow away Murphy moved through the field before gaining a good position midfield. In the closing stages the pair were able to make good headway and get up to win nicely.

Battle Of The Nile was born and raised at Tweenhills Stud and his win brings sire Havana Gold to 21 winners this season. Congratulations to his owner Qatar Racing Ltd.

His success provides a 4th juvenile winner, out of 7 runners, for the James Ferguson Team.
