Quest surges to Plate glory
Published 28/06/2015 | 02:30
Quest For More was an authoritative winner of the John Smith's Northumberland Plate at Newcastle for Roger Charlton and George Baker.
The five-year-old was among the leading contenders for the two-mile feature following a recent victory at Goodwood and Baker had the 15/2 second-favourite well positioned from the start, racing in midfield against the rail.
He remained full of running passing the three-furlong marker and quickened nicely through a tight gap to give himself every chance a furlong out.
Willie Mullins' Max Dynamite came from the clouds to try and mount a challenge as the line loomed, but Quest For More was well on top as he passed the post a length and a quarter to the good.
Max Dynamite was second, ahead of Nearly Caught in third, with last year's one-two Angel Gabrial and Suegioo close up in fourth and fifth respectively. Favourite Seamour came sixth.
