Who was your Star Performer of the Weekend?

The weather got the better of some of the weekend's meetings, but we were still treated to some fantastic performances, both on the flat and over the jumps, at the likes of Kempton, Bath and Carlisle.

The question is, who was your Star Performer of the Weekend and why?

Auric opened the card at Kempton on Saturday with a well-fought victory for Hugo Palmer and Oisin Murphy on just his second start, getting up on the line to win the Class 2 Restricted Novice Stakes by a head.

Adelaise was the first of three winners for William Buick on the card, narrowly beating favourite, Choisya, to make the trip worthwhile for Irish trainer Joseph O'Brien. Devoted Queen was Buick's second winner, staying on well to hold off the late charge from Marcella. But the most impressive of the three followed straight after, as Godolphin's Notable Speech thundered home in the Class 2 British EBF Conditions Stakes, earning the colt quotes of around 10/1 from as big as 66/1 for this year's 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.

On Sunday at Bath, Adaay in Devon was the first of only two winning favourites on the card, scoring comfortably after struggling for room around two furlongs for the finish. Ice Max won by the biggest margin on the card, dealing with the heavy conditions well to win by four lengths for the Karl Burke team.

At Carlisle, the conditions were just as tough as they were in the south, and Milcree seeminglydealt with them best of all for trainer Nicky Richards in the opener as the six-year-old gelding got off the mark at the third attempt under rules by a huge nineteen lengths. Later in the card, the Rebecca Menzies-trained Tom Cody won the final of the Go North Stayers' Series, making it three victories from eight runs this campaign.
