Former jump jockey turned trainer Seamus Durack sent out 5/4 favourite BOHEMIANRHAPSODY from his base at Baydon in Wiltshire to land The Visit Newton Abbot Racecourse On Facebook Maiden Hurdle Race 2m 3f. The opener was run at a respectable gallop and the winner and his main rival in the market Maxi Chop were well clear and locked together until the favourites stamina kicked in on the run-in enabling him to win by half a length.
