Grumeti 50/1 foils gamble at Newmarket
Alan King and Adam Beschizza tasted Betfred Cesarewitch glory at Newmarket with 50/1 shot Grumeti as they claimed a thrilling win from gambled Oriental Fox in second.
Beschizza also rode the Cambridgeshire winner Third Time Lucky so completes a famous Autumn double with the dual purpose charge Grumeti and stayed on all the way to the line in an absolute belter of a finish.
In behind it was third place again for Tony Martin’s Quick Jack with Willie Mullins’ Renetti in fourth and the one who went for home first in the straight Nearly Caught finishing in 5th spot.
Beschizza “It’s the autumn double. It’s happened, so I’m over the moon. I sat bit handier than I’d liked and the trainer said to take my time but he’s seen it out. He’s not ran in two and a half months and I think if he was in a Flat yard you’d think he’d need it but he came here as fit as a flea. He’s done it well, and I’m delighted.”
