Red-hot Sam England sizzles Bangor

Tue 3 Jan 2017

Sam England's golden patch continued as Cabragh gave the Guiseley trainer a fourth winner from her last five runners when scoring at Bangor.

The eight-year-old, ridden by her husband Jonathan, came away with the Stella Artois Supporting Bangor Handicap Chase in good style.

Taken into the lead as early as the third fence, Cabragh (11-4) was challenged hard by Pithivier but kept on well to score by six lengths, despite a slight mistake at the last.

"That was good. The horses are running well. I'm not complaining," said the winning trainer.

"I'll see what else there is that comes up for him."

Truckers Glory (5-2 favourite) led before the third-last as he made a winning debut over fences in the Stella Artois Novices' Limited Handicap Chase.

Blinkered for the first time, the Rebecca Curtis-trained seven-year-old was driven out on the run-in by Adam Wedge to hold On The Road by a length.

Richard Johnson was seen to good effect on I'm A Game Changer (2-1) in the Stella Artois Cidre 'National Hunt' Novices' Hurdle.

The champion jockey grabbed the bull by the horns, taking the lead before the third-last flight on the Philip Hobbs-trained five-year-old, who went on to score seven lengths from Grand Coureur.

His owners Paul and Clare Rooney also enjoyed success at Musselburgh with Mixboy.

Petite Power (7-4 favourite) justified strong support to open his account over smaller obstacles in the Stella Artois-sponsored handicap hurdle.

Paddy Brennan sent Fergal O'Brien's eight-year-old into the lead after three out and was soon in command, winning by four and a half lengths from Justatenner.

Alan King's Dingo Dollar (even-money favourite) led two out in the hands of Wayne Hutchinson as he landed a cosy success in the Le Chalice Maiden Hurdle, beating Zerachiel by three and a half lengths.

Amateur Michael Legg picked up a winning spare ride at the expense of ill Noel Fehily when he steered Harry Fry's newcomer Just A Sting (6-1) to victory in the bumper.
