Lismore Comes Home Under Jamie Spencer To Win Henry II Stakes
By Jonathan Harding
Henry de Bromhead showed his Midas touch extended beyond jump races when Lismore landed Group 3 Coral Henry II stakes.
Ridden with supreme confidence by Jamie Spencer, the 14-1 winner stormed the home of Ranch Hand, with 4-5 favorite Ocean Wind in third.
“She was excellent. There weren’t a lot of two mile races at home so we thought we were going to try to finish third. Jamie was awesome,” said De Bromhead, at a member’s request. from the Sandown crowd if he wasn’t happy to win the biggest jumps races.
“She gets better over time and continues to develop. We would have been delighted to be third so seeing her storm the climb was amazing – she stays so good and is so authentic. tell Anthony. [Rogers, owner] she would be an adorable hedgehog mare but he’s not buying her yet. “
On future goals, the coach added: “We were considering the Prix du Cadran at the Arc meeting. It was a dream but maybe not now.”
Euchen bounces off Brigadier Gerard
Euchen Glen stayed on top to create a 20-1 surprise and give coach Jim Goldie his first victory in the Coral Brigadier Gerard Stakes.
The eight-year-old picked his rivals one by one down the straight before shrugging his 3lb penalty with a powerful finish. He finished four and a quarter lengths ahead of favorite Sangarius.
Euchen Glen, who won Group 3 St Simon Stakes last season, finished on the pitch in his first two starts of the campaign.
“Jim’s horses have come through a corner in the last few weeks,” said winning jockey Paul Mulrennan. “I ended up getting there a bit early because they stopped in front. It is an honor to Jim because Euchen Glen was seriously injured and was out for 18 months.

“It took him a few races to build his confidence last year, but Jim and the team did wonders to bring him back to this level.”
The jockey added: “He really likes putting his toes on and the ground was perfect for him. With the weather the Ebor in York could be an interesting option for him.”
The river comes home to national issues
Ebro River did it the hard way, but more than made up for his slow start when he cleared to clinch the listed national stakes.
The two-year-old, whose father Galileo Gold won the 2000 Guineas for coach Hugo Palmer, hung up badly on the left but produced a late acceleration to finish three and a quarter lengths ahead of Little Earl under James Doyle.
“He looked very smart from day one he arrived,” Palmer said. “He’s obviously still a little baby and has a few wrinkles to iron out – how to do that I’m not sure.”
Ebro River was presented at 14-1 for the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, and Palmer added: “I’m not sure which race he will go for. He wouldn’t be able to give four lengths in Norfolk as he will. will have a mile and a half in time and we’ll gradually speed it up as the season progresses. He’s got his work cut out for him. “
