Electric Waves Grabs Listed Victory

It was another gainful journey to Newbury in under a month for trainer Ed McMahon as Electric Waves was victorious in the Listed Bathwick Tyres St Hugh's Stakes.

Along with owner John Fretwell, the Staffordshire trainer enjoyed a profitable outing last month, when Temple Meads grabbed a victory over the course and distance in the Weatherbys Super Sprint.

Electric Waves with jockey Richard Mullen aboard looked like a winning duo at the one furlong pole, giving a good performance during the race to win by a length and a quarter from Sweet Cecily, with third place The Thrill Is Gone back a further three quarters of a length, while the race favourite Hooray failed to fire finishing sixth.

McMahon said of his charge, "I think the ground has helped her a little.

"Off a mark of 88, on paper you'd think she'd have run well if she was third or fourth, but she's a filly that hasn't stopped improving.

"It was a bit of a shot in the dark but we've taken our chance and it's paid off.

"I should think there might be some offers for her after this, so we'll have to wait and see."
