Tue 1st June A&T Go-Ride Grand Prix Round 1 Astley & Tyldesley

Astley & Tyldesley staged Round 1 of the A&T Go-Ride Grand Prix series at Gin Pit on Tuesday evening. With nine riders, all from A&T, participating, the riders were split into two groups - Novices and Youths. The early heats consisted of scratch races, with handicapping introduced for the later heats, in both groups.

6 years old Alexander Lawless won the first two scratch races and picked up enough points later on, riding off the biggest handicap, to take the overall win in the Novice category. 4 years old Lillie Field made the most of a generous handicap to win the last two races and move up into 2nd place overall.
