Gale Force Maya to aim at listed victory after win at Newmarket

Michael Dods says ultra-consistent mare Gale Force Maya will be heading for a listed race after her latest win at Newmarket today.

The six-year-old, running in the colours of Frank Lowe, was winning for the 10th time in 31 runs when she winning the Weatherbys Bloodstock Pro Handicap by a nose in the hands of Connor Beasley.

She clearly loves Newmarket, having won at headquarters last September and finishing in the frame on four other occasions.

Michael told Racing TV: "She's an easy horse to train. It's great for the owners who have supported the yard for a while now. They've got a bug so they had to cancel the trip down but I'm sure they were watching on TV.

"She certainly comes good when she comes here for whatever reason and, after today, we'll be looking to a listed race and get some black type."

She finished off last season by being beaten a short-head by Roger Varian's She Do in the listed Dubai British EBF Boadicea Stakes at Newmarket.
