Racing was delayed mid-meeting at Redcar on Saturday as thunderstorms and torrential rains hit the north Yorkshire track at 3pm.

Star Shield (2.50) tipped each-way ran on strongly to finish second, behind Richard Fahey trained Gallipoli (28-1) ridden by Barry McHugh in the Join Racing TV Handicap, over 1 mile – before the heavens opened.
