A magnificent looking gelding by Lethal Force out of Ambrix and a half brother to winning filly Kloda. Melgate Majeure hasn't been the easiest horse to train but we think we have found the key to him by taking him out first on the gallops every morning. He also wears a bib in his box as he is a ferocious nibbler of horse rugs.
Melgate Majeure won on his fifth racecourse outing, when he stormed home in the Ladbrokes Home Of Odds Boost Nursery Handicap at Newcastle over seven furlongs ridden by Jimmy Sullivan. He followed up over a mile back at Newcastle in November again ridden by Jimmy and looks a very progressive sort.
