Racing: Cambridgeshire candidate
Sunday 24 August 1997
Hamdan Al-Maktoum's colt seized the Danepak Classic Rated Handicap to make amends for a disappointing performance at Goodwood on his last outing. In charge with a furlong to travel he kept up the gallop under Gary Hind to defeat Hajr by two and a half lengths with the fast- finishing Darapour a head back in third. Labeq's trainer Peter Walwyn had expected a bold showing from the colt at Goodwood. But he said: "He had a big lump on his elbow before the race and that must have had something to do with it. We've used goose grease to treat the problem and it's cleared up. I've always thought this was a good horse and he's in the Cambridgeshire. I only hope the handicapper won't be too nasty."
Cybertechnology, trained by Barry Hills, found a powerful late burst of pace to pip Flamboyance in the Chris Blackwell Handicap.
The victory was the first of the season for the colt's owner-breeder Bill Gredley, who said: "I've got 35 horses and I've had a desperate season. I've had my horses with a few trainers in the past but I've decided it might be better to have them all under one roof. So Barry will be training them all in future. It was his idea to drop Cybertechnology down in distance."
