CHECKANDCHALLENGE signs off season with a victory!

November 8, 2023

CHECKANDCHALLENGE made the most of a significant drop in class to gain a deserved first success of the campaign in the Mutasaabeq At The National Stud James Seymour Stakes at Newmarket last Saturday.

Having been set some stiff assignments since the turn of the year the son of Fast Company, who finished fourth in Group One Queen Elizabeth II Stakes for the second year running on his latest start, enjoyed a deserved change of luck dropped back down to Listed company.

Anchored close to the rear of the field through the early exchanges of the mile and a quarter prize, the 6-1 chance steadily worked his way into contention under Callum Shepherd.  

Once hitting the front victory looked to be a formality however Checkandchallenge was made to pull out all the stops by rallying favourite, and early pace setter, Pride Of America before getting the better of their late battle by a neck.
