Murphy, Probert bag doubles alongside Balding and Cox in midweek action at Kempton Park

Peter Moore at Kempton Park 1st November 2023

On a pretty chilly first night of a brand-new month, it was doubles all around with Oisin Murphy along with David Probert gaining the honours for the jockeys with Trainers Andrew Balding and Clive Cox bagging a brace as well.

Murphy rode the Baldwin pair of Topaga and Scintillante to victory with Cox saddling both Get The Music on and Vultar to victory.

John Fahy was on board Get The Music On, who got the better of the 100-1 shot State Flag by one and a quarter lengths.

Cox’s other winner on the night was compliments of Richard Kingscote who was successful on the three-year-old Vultar.

Highly fancied two-year-old filly Topagna came into the Class 4 novice stakes looking to break her maiden tag after a very promising run at this course two weeks ago where she finished second.

Despite the cold weather, one lady was celebrating like no other. Owner Sue Maine and the connections of The Cola Kid couldn’t hide there winning emotions when the Grey Gelding got up in a thrilling finish by a nose from Murphy on Laura’s Breeze in the penultimate race of the evening at the odds of 8-1.
