Ivanhoe second at Nottingham and Gracesome fourth at Kempton

Ivanhoe just failed to catch Bertie Moon in the final stages of the 1m 6f Handicap at Nottingham on Tuesday evening. Ridden by David Probert and this time fitted with a visor the distance was a fast diminishing short head! Ivanhoe has now been placed in his last five starts this season.

Running the next day in the same colours, Gracesome was also ridden by David Probert over 1m 4f at Kempton. Drawn on the wide outside, Gracesome had to run round the field and was a fast finishing fourth following up her good run at Wolverhampton at the end of July.
