“Vinales wins his maiden for Paul Stuart”

Promising youngster Vinales overcame a fair getaway and traffic at the first turn to win tonight’s City Class Maiden over 509m. The son of Bernardo was fifth at the winning post and surrounded by greyhounds before railing into second position past the catching pen. Outsider Lou’s Soul set the pace but when he strayed from the rail in the back straight Vinales pounced on the lead. Vinales then powered clear to score by 7.75 lengths in a smart time of 29.77. Crosswired flew home for second and three lengths away third was the fading Lou’s Soul. Vinales is named after Spanish motorcycle rider Maverick Vinales and is a litter brother to other promising youngsters Arbolino and Bezzecchi.
