Another Allan Bloodlines 2yo winner from Tatts Ireland
The chant of C’MON YOU IRONS may have been ringing across St James Park at the weekend, but it was also being yelled at Hamilton or at Racing UK screens this afternoon when the Orpen colt so named won his maiden.
Owned by two groups of West Ham fans in partnership with Allan Bloodlines, this very smart looking, good quality sort started well fancied to turn over the odds-on favourite and duly obliged. Held back by Allan and tremendously in-form trainer Bryan Smart for easier ground, the son of Orpen travelled well throughout, sharing the lead and going ahead approaching the final furlong.
Repelling a renewed challenge from the favourite under an excellent ride from Tom Eaves, C’MON YOU IRONS – an Allan Bloodlines purchase at the Tattersalls Ireland Septmeber Yearling Sale last Autumn – notched up a handy win and is the sort to improve again.
