No Nay Never Paddock

Future Looks Bright For No Nay Never Newcomer

The Roger Varian-trained Rizg (2c No Nay Never - Azenzar, by Danehill Dancer) shaped like an exciting prospect when beating the highly-rated favourite at Yarmouth on Thursday.

Imad Alsagar’s homebred was well-supported in the market, which was headed by Dig Two, a dual winner and second in the Windsor Castle Stakes. Chasing the leaders in the early stages of the six furlong contest, Hollie Doyle asked her mount to quicken two furlongs from home and he showed a good turn of foot to lead inside the final furlong. Running on well, he beat the aforementioned favourite by half a length, with another two and a quarter lengths back to City Runner (Caravaggio) in third.

Doyle’s post-race comments supported the favourable impression of Rizg’s debut, saying, “I was really pleased with that. Rizg has always shown us plenty at home and we couldn't wait to run him really. The way he travelled and the way he picked up makes me think he's a classy performer.”
