This'll Testya

Nights Mystery chases another victory

Three-year-old gelding, Nights Mystery, will be aiming to go back-to-back when he steps out at Belmont Park Racecourse on Wednesday in the Quayclean Handicap (1000m).

The gelding by Knight Exemplar has shown plenty of speed in the early stages of his career and was able to hold on for a comfortable maiden victory last start.

Ridden by Holly Watson on that occasion, she will keep the ride, meaning he will only carry 56.5kg from barrier 7.

Garage Days who finished third behind Nights Mystery and has won since will take his place for Adam Durrant, while State Of Power who has also shown ability has accepted for Simon Miller.

Trainer of Nights Mystery, Mitchell Pateman, will be hoping the gelding can top off an amazing week for himself and his team already.

Pateman announced his retirement from race riding at Ascot Racecourse on Monday and was able to ride a winner in his last race.

The excitement didn’t stop there, with Pateman also training his first metro winner, when his favourite horse This’ll Testya was able to win with Watson in the saddle.
