11 went to post yesterday at Sandown Park for the Holiday Inn Shepperton Handicap Chase for the John Dunsdon Memorial and the field was soon dramatically diminished to 9 with James King unseated at the first and Michael Legg similarly despatched at the second.

As the race progressed and the chasing pack began to thin, the old gentleman of the party Charlie Longsdon’s 13-year-old PETE THE FEAT responded to the urgings of his jockey🇮🇪 Damien Skehan and led from 3 out to gallop on gamely up the hill and win by 2 3/4 lengths.

Well done to Damien not only on this great 25/1 win but also on finding his way to the racecourse in the first place, having got lost on the way! Many congratulations to winning connections.
