Oliver Show (No Nay Never X Ashley Hall) added just three promising runs to get his rating of 76.  When he turned up on June 28th at Kempton he went to post as favourite and had a comfortable two and a half lengths victory.

Sir Michael Stout is the master at bringing along and improving his horses performance.  Everyone noticed his easy victory and none more so than the handicapper who has increased his official rating to 83.  This should not get in the way of further wins and we can expect to see him back in the winners enclosure shortly.

Oliver Show being by No Nay Never out of the American mare Ashley Hall is comfortable running both on the grass and on the all weather.  His victory on June 28th was on the all weather at Kempton but he had already shown his versatility in finishing 4th on the grass track at Newbury.  Ashley Hall has already produced the black type horses Pedestal and Loch Lein.  She has a Wooden Bassett yearling colt which will sell in Book One at the Tattersalls October sale.
