Despite decent runs by Broughton’s Story and Ruby’s Gem, Team McBride came home empty handed from their trip to Windsor on Monday evening.
Upped in trip to just short of a mile and a half Broughton Story finished a creditable 4 1/2L 5th of 16 behind The Detainee, who just held off Amuletum by a head. He was held up in the rear for the best part before making good progress 3 from home but weakened inside the final furlong.
Ruby’s Gem featured in the Cl6 mile closer, finishing 5 1/2L 8th of 14 behind Bombshell Bay who led pretty much from start to finish. Ruby’s Gem chased the leaders but was unable to maintain her effort, fading inside the final furlong.
This is a busy week for McBride who travels to Yarmouth today with Bluff Crag and Priscilla’s Dream. The latter has been working well at home and connections will be hoping to build on her promising run last time out when 10th in the £150k Auction Sales race at Newmarket in October.
