Leading apprentice Sean Davis enjoyed a memorable first career treble at mammoth odds of 7,955-1 at Wolverhampton, featuring two big-priced winners for boss Richard Fahey and a winning spare for David Simcock.
The Fahey-trained Primeiro Boy relished the step up to seven furlongs for the first time to win at 33-1 in the opening classified stakes, while stablemate Micronize registered his maiden victory at the 15th attempt, staying on best to score by a neck in the 6f handicap at 25-1.
Davis replaced the ill Jim Crowley on the Simcock-trained Moment Of Hope in the 1m4f novice median auction, who scored for the second time in three starts by a neck at 8-1
Davis, previously based with Ger Lyons in Ireland, said on Sky Sports Racing: “It’s been a great day and I couldn’t have asked for better. It means a lot to ride my first treble and I have to thank everyone who has supported me.
“They went a really good pace which suited Primeiro Boy, who saw the trip out well, while Micronize had a desperate draw but the drop in trip did the trick.
“Richard [Fahey] always felt he was capable of winning a couple of races once things went right for him.
“I was thankful to get the ride on Moment Of Hope – she’s progressive, tried hard and did it well.”
Davis, who was suspended from 17-19 July for offences relating to failing to ride to his draw and careless riding aboard Micronize, leads the Stobart apprentice jockeys’ championship by six winners and heads to Hamilton for six mounts on Tuesday.
