Hever Golf Lover on the way to 1,000

Hever Golf Lover, winner of the Light Brigade Maiden Stakes at Lingfield yesterday, could be a runner in this year's 1,000 Guineas, the Swedish one at Taby, that is.

The filly, ridden by Darryll Holland and sent off the 5-2 favourite, led on the home turn to score by four lengths from Countless Times.

Her trainer, the Epsom-based Joe Naughton, said: "We entered her in December last year as you have to do it early. The race is worth about 40 grand.

"There are two races here on 11 January over five furlongs and seven. She could go for one of them and will stay more than the minimum trip."

Alan Daly notched the 40th winner of his career and his 22nd of the year when the Eric Wheeler-trained Mister Raider took the Inkerman Handicap. "Alan rides him exceptionally well," Wheeler said. "The horse breaks well and is useful in his own class."
