Luck just not with Kinane's mount

A rippling-fit Lucky Glory (13-1) looks a winner waiting to happen after a luckless sixth in last night's Class Four, 1,200-metre dash won by Look Who's Angel.

Irish ace Mick Kinane was fortunate not to come to grief down the back when Lucky Glory was almost knocked through the running rail in an incident involving Barish.

The Bruce Hutchison-trained Lucky Glory was spat out the back and had to be ridden hard to the Rock to stay in touch with the rest.

After that sort of treatment he was entitled to give up the hunt, but he knuckled down to the task and finished brilliantly down the centre of the track to be beaten just 2.75 lengths.

The track pattern, with a heavy bias to horses on the speed, was also against him, so Lucky Glory's performance was outstanding.

A clear passage and the veteran handicapper would almost certainly would have won the race.TLP
