Impressive new winner for Cotai Glory
Cotai Glory added yet another winner to his burgeoning record on Thursday with the impressive success of Mot And The Messer over 6f at Ripon.
The Tom Dascombe-trained colt had shaped encouragingly on his debut and made no mistake this time, quickening clear for a near six-length score.
The Racing Post was impressed, saying: "Mot And The Messer ran a promising race on his debut and found plenty of improvement to win this by a comfortable margin. He was strongly supported, and presumably was happier on the quicker ground. He's a son of Cotai Glory, who is doing so well with his first crop, while Tom Dascombe is having a successful run with his juveniles."
The colt was bred by R Patterson out of Sommorell, a daughter of Fast Company whose previous foals include Listed winner Inverleigh and the Group 3-placed Setarhe.
Cotai Glory boasts 11 winners to date, among them two colts who ran mighty races at Royal Ascot - Eldrickjones and Dig Two, who ran second in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes and Listed Windsor Castle Stakes respectively.
Like Dig Two, Mot And The Messer was a yearling purchase by SackvilleDonald.
