Alfie’s Run Continues

Alfred Nobel’s success continued when 3Y0 Carbutt’s Ridge easily won the Handicap (1mile 1/2furlong) at Nottingham in England yesterday. (Thursday)

Carbutt’s Ridge, a 7/2 chance who was also successful at Southwell earlier this year, sat off the pace and sprinted clear to win by 3len. from Bit Of A Quirke (5/1, by Monsieur Bond). The 5/2 favourite Tricky Dicky, by Holy Roman Emperor, was a further 2 1/4len. away third.

Carbutt’s Ridge’s trainer Karl Burke was fresh from winning the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup with Quiet Reflection at Royal Ascot.
