Hot run for Inns Of Court continues

Inns Of Court's excellent run of success continued on Wednesday thanks to a game display from his daughter Petra Celera to win at Catterick.

The Karl Burke-trained filly travelled well behind the leaders for Clifford Lee and - rather like Baileys Polka Dot at Dieppe on Tuesday - showed all her battling qualities to deny the gelding Mini Magna.

Later on the card, another daughter Buttercross Flyer ran second in the 7f maiden.

Petra Celera becomes Inns Of Court's second winner in as many days following Baileys Polka Dot's success in conditions company at Dieppe. Saturday's action also featured an impressive debut win for expensive breezer Tropical Island at Ripon and a six-length win by Zen Spirit in Poland.

"She travelled so well into the race," said Clifford Lee. "When I got there, she was very green underneath me still. The track probably didn’t help but she had her head down at the right time and she’ll come on for it."

Previously placed for Nick Bradley Racing, Petra Celera was bred by Cooper Lyons Daid out of Frabrika, by Intense Focus. She was sold by Sherbourne Lodge Stud to Karl & Kelly Burke and Nick Bradley Racing at the Tattersalls Somerville Sale.

Inns Of Court is represented by two runners in Thursday's Listed Star Stakes at Sandown - Eminny and Gray's Inn.
