Beverley’s Lady Jane Bethell Memorial yesterday¬†saw 10 runners and riders go to post, with granddaughter Serena Brotherton partnering favourite SAN CASIANNO looking for a repeat of their impressive victory here a fortnight earlier but with 4 lbs more to carry.

Always prominent behind LEON ON PETE and Catherine Walton who led until the final furlong, they were unable to quicken when under pressure. Meanwhile Emma Todd had held up Karen Tutty’s I’M SUPER TOO early on to chase the leaders in the final furlong alongside Emily Bullock and Richard Fahey’s RUBIS, with Emma getting up by 3/4 of a length as they flashed past the post. 2nd was Emily Bullock, with Catherine Walton 3/4 length back in 3rd and Serena Brotherton 1 1/2 lengths 4th.

Many congratulations to all connections and of course to Emma who is on fire, having gone into the lead for the Ladies NH Championship only 2 days earlier with her win at Uttoxeter aboard BIG SOUND for Mark Walford when taking on professionals over fences. This took her season’s tally over jumps to 4 on Sunday and her win at Beverley was her 1st career win on the Flat!
