Ed Walker trained Starman 9-2 tipped by fromthehorsesmouth.info landed the Group 1 Darley July Cup Stakes over 6 furlongs ridden by Tom Marquand at Newmarket on Saturday.
“They had me in a bit of trouble at the three-pole going downhill. As these top-class sprinters were quickening it all got a bit tight and he was inexperienced compared to a lot of these,” said Marquand.

“It’s fantastic for Ed and the team, it’s so well deserved. He’s an absolute star. This lad is as close to a racecar as you can get,” added Marquand.
