Newbury’s Super Saturday livened up by £350,000 Scoop6 Rollover

Christian Williams is making an admirable habit of being a successful big race trainer. His Limited Reserve won the 3:00 at Sandown (Leg 4, Bonus race) under Jack Tudor, securing Grade 3 victory in this valuable and hotly contested handicap hurdle. Unfortunately for the Scoop6 Bonus seeker, Ask Ben was unable to land a blow. Leg 4 of the pool also claimed the remaining legs of this week’s win fund, so next Saturday we have a bumper pool of well over £350,000 up for grabs. Tote spokesman Kevin O’Malley said: “Next week’s Scoop6 rollover is exciting for punters, who could win quite the fortune for as little as a £2 stake. Along with superb National Hunt action at Newbury and Warwick, it will make for another highly enjoyable Saturday afternoon.” On the UK front today, Itchy Feet was a classy winner of the Grade 1 Scilly Isles Chase at Sandown Park for Olly Murphy and Gavin Sheehan. This consistent six-year-old is a fine model of a chaser, he has entries in the Arkle and the Marsh Novice chases at the Festival and will make a top notch addition to either of those targets. Call Me Lord was one paced in the Contenders Hurdle - also at Sandown - succumbing to the late burst of the Paul Nicholls trained Quel Destin. Performance of the day up in Musselburgh goes to Bob Mahler, in what would’ve been Leg 5 of the Scoop6 pool at 3:15. Warren Greatrex’s inmate produced a race-winning turn of foot after four demanding miles of running prior to the final fence. He needed every inch of it to get up, but was provided a fine ride by Adrian Heskin. Over in Leopardstown, Grade 1 cream rose to the top on Day 1 of the Dublin Racing Festival. Latest Exhibition, Chacun Pour Soi, Notebook and Honeysuckle all passed their respective top level examinations on a memorable afternoon. Leopardstown deserve credit for all aspects of this rising event, but the dynamism and visual impact of the camera work there was fantastic this afternoon.
