The Mr & Mrs Richardson Wedding Day Celebrations Novices’ Hurdle 2m1f was won in fine style by LYSSIO as one would expect from such a short priced favourite. The race was not without incident with only three of the nine starters finishing.
The Visit Newton Abbot Racecourse On Facebook Maiden Hurdle 2m 3f was run at an honest pace. Jonjo O’Neill’s dual bumper winner ANOTHERHERO a half-brother to the top class hurdler Back In Front, travelled well under the champion jockey and jumped fluently on his hurdle debut going comfortably clear after the third last to beat Kalmbeforethestorm by 8 lengths. There was plenty to like about this winning performance and he will be sure to follow-up this win.
