Musselburgh report By Gordon Brown

Snapped up for a mere £1,000 last May, he took his total earnings for the William Young stable to almost £56,000 when storming home in the Racing Post Gonorth Finals Weekend 20-22 March Handicap Chase.

He has been kept busy since joining his shrewd Clyde Valley handler with this recent outing being his 16th in the light blue and red Young colours.

This was the fourth win over fences for the ex-Dan Skelton recruit with two other strikes for the Young stable coming in hurdle company for good measure.

All six victories have come under jockey Sam Coltherd, the son of Selkirk trainer Stuart Coltherd.

His latest success, at odds of 8-1, saw him lead from the second fence before slamming Duke Of Navan by three and a half lengths.

On a additional card triggered in light of recent abandonments in Scotland and the north, Paul Nicholls and Harry Cobden teamed up for a short-priced double courtesy of Nineohtwooneoh and Christopher Wood.

And Keith Dalgleish also bagged a brace when landing the first two races with Glorious Lady and First Account.
