A great day for amateurs at Kelso yesterday with the opener, the Amateur Jockeys Association Handicap Hurdle won in fine style by a patiently ridden CRAIG STAR under Abbie Mccain for her father Donald.

On the heavy ground Abbie bided her time to take it up before the last and draw clear on the run-in and win by 5 lengths from long time leader UN GUET APENS and Kit Alexander. Abbie followed her winning ride with a great interview with Gordon Brown and her assessment of the other McCain runners of the afternoon proved to be spot on with the yard enjoying a treble on the day! Well done all.

The feature race of the afternoon, the P&G Allan Catering Novices’ Chase, saw the promising young Irish🇮🇪amateur Liam Quinlan on ACDC for Chris Grant track the other 2 runners in the race for most of the way, only forging ahead on the run-in to stay on strongly and win by half a length from Brian Hughes and VERY FIRST TIME. Many congratulations!
