Davis Wears The Crown At York!

Maynooth man Sean Davis partnered the Richard Fahey trained Crownthorpe to a convincing win in the ‘Racebets Money Back 2nd 3rd 4th Handicap Stakes’ at York Racecourse in the 2.40 on Friday.

3lb claimer Davis, who is currently in a battle with Cieren Fallon for the British Apprentice Championship title, sent Crownthorpe to the front just over one furlong out before keeping on strongly to win by 2 & 1/4 lengths, with Firmament back in second place.

Today’s victory is in stark contrast to the last time the pair partnered up at York on August 22nd when Crownthorpe unseated Davis at the start before galloping on with the rest of the field.

There is no denying that he can be a tricky horse on his day but owners and trainers alike will forgive him this following today’s fine win at one of Britain’s finest and most popular tracks.

One punter on Twitter said of Crownthorpe: “Lst four runs. U36F Not often you see a horse with more letters than numbers in his Flat form but you can add a 1 now to Crownthorpe, who has won the 2.40 at York”

Crownthorpe also won best turned out for the race. And jockey Davis is now back to within seven of Fallon with just over a week to go in the race to be crowned Champion Apprentice.

Sean Davis captures first treble at odds of 7,955-1 at Wolverhampton

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.
