The 69th British Bred Produce Stakes - Swindon 480m (£15,000)

The Brits are up and running for the 69th British Bred Produce Stakes at Swindon. It was a thrilling night of action and it's going to be exciting to see who can be crowned the 'Best Of British' and bank that huge cheque of £15,000 to-the-winner.

 

Nick Savva, David Firmager and Matt Dartnall got their Produce Stakes bids off to a flying start taking an unbelievable 11 of the 12 heats between them. Nick Savva scored four times; Westmead Alonso 29.09, Westmead Rossi 29.09, Westmead Hunter 29.25 and Westmead Phoenix 28.92. David Firmager also hit a fabulous four timer; Fabulous Milan 29.15, Romeo Storm 28.71, Fabulous Expert 28.97 and Romeo Zulu 28.80. Matt Dartnall weighed in with three heat winners; What Fun Jamie 28.69, What Fun Macey 29.10, What Fun Gracie 28.93. The remaining heat was won by Aero Liberty trained by Maggie Lucas. I thought it would be a good idea to catch up with Maggie and get the latest news on Aero Liberty and what it feels like to have trained a first-round winner.

'I'm well chuffed I really am. I was worried about the distance, it was a great feeling to see him trap out and see out this 480m trip. He's a right character and loves to be the centre of attention, there's nothing more he likes than being made a fuss of and given plenty of cuddles. His main weapon is his early pace and you've always a chance out in front. It's been really pleasing to see him progress the way he's done and I'm now hoping for a nice heat in round-two. He's no faults and travels brilliantly, I'm really enjoying the competition and fingers crossed he can keep running well. It's a real feel good factor for the all kennel to be involved in this great competition'.
