New stable acquisition Vellastar was able to salute the judge at Sandown yesterday, in only his second start for the stable.He claimed the BM70 1400m race given a well timed ride by jockey Ben Melham.

With a slightly awkward draw in barrier 12, he jumped away and settled back second last, about 3 off the fence in the better going.Once into the straight he was the widest runner continuing to gain momentum and was too strong to the line.

Congratulations to his owners, we hope Vella can now go on his winning way.
