Second Thought flies home to take Listed honours at Wolverhampton

Second Thought Second Thought maintained his unbeaten record on the all-weather with an impressive victory in the sunbets.co.uk Lady Wulfruna Stakes at Wolverhampton.
Taking his sequence to six out of six on an artificial surface, Second Thought benefited from an inspired ride from Ryan Moore as a lot went wrong in the Listed fast-track qualifier over seven furlongs.
The 8-11 favourite was last out of the stalls and raced on the outside in the early stages.
Moore galvanised the William Haggas-trained four-year-old when the field straightened for home and Second Thought quickly hit top gear.
He stamped his authority in a matter of strides to score in style by two and a quarter lengths. Early Morning was second, with Masham Star third.
"He did well especially as it was a little like his run at Kempton, and that was quite a time ago," Maureen Haggas, wife and assistant to the trainer, told At The Races.
"He came round them all. He's a grand horse. He loves the all-weather.
"It's great but I don't think there's any reason why he shouldn't reproduce it on the grass.
"He just got jarred up in his first race at Haydock last year and it took us a long time to get him back.
"He was ready to go again on the all-weather so that's what we stuck to.
"We'll head for all-weather finals day at Lingfield. He's won there. He doesn't mind the track, he just loves the all-weather.
"He's got plenty of ability. Let's just hope he can transfer it to the grass."
