Award Scheme

Award Scheme ran well to finish third in the Galtres Stakes. Strong in the market beforehand, she was dropped in and held up early on by Danny Tudhope as her stable companion Sea Of Faith made the early running. She travelled well into the home straight in rear, and she made nice progress early in the home straight, shaping as if she was going to be involved in the finish on the run to the furlong pole. Her run just flattened out a little after that, and she was run out of it for second place behind the impressive Gold Wand by Vivionn.

It was still a nice run by William Haggas’ filly. She is not straightforward, but she shaped on her previous run at Salisbury over 10 furlongs as if she might appreciate a step up in trip, but it looked here like the distance just stretched her a little. She was impressive when she won a 10-furlong handicap at York last month when she made all the running, so she could improve again for a drop back down in trip and perhaps ridden forward.
