Roger Fell and jockey Tony Hamilton land a double at Ayr

North Yorkshire based trainer Roger Fell and jockey Tony Hamilton landed a double at Ayr Racecourse’s totepool Family Day on Sunday.

Two For Two, just beaten a nose in the same race last year,  won the feature race the Class 3 one mile handicap carrying top weight at odds of 7-1.

Held up in last place by Hamilton the nine year-old was produced on the outside two furlongs out and led inside the final furlong and was driven out  to win by a head from Finn Class.

The Fell-Hamilton double had been initiated half an hour earlier in the Bet totetrifecta at handicap, also over a mile, when Zodiakos, a 13-2 chance,  won comfortably by a length and three quarters from  the Ruth Carr trained Abushamah

Two Newmarket trainers were among the winners. John Gosden sent the highly thought of Pouvoir Magique on the 700 mile round trip to win the opening maiden comfortably at the prohibitive odds of 1-12 in the hands of James Doyle and this colt could now go for the Group 2 Great Voltigeur Stakes at York next month.

David Lanigan and jockey Paul Mulrennan teamed up with Take A Turn, sent off at 11-2, to win Division Two of the Bet totequadpot At Handicap over  one mile two furlongs by a neck from Never Say.

Another  impressive winner  was Nothing To Say  who came with a wet sail to win the seven furlong handicap at odds of 6-4 under a fine ride from former two time champion jockey Paul Hanagan for Irish based trainer John McConnell.

And there was a touch of déjà vu on the final race on the card, the amateur riders’ handicap won by Perfect Words, 11-4 favourite,  for trainer Marjorie Fife and jockey Becky Smith as the same horse, trainer and jockey partnership won this race last year.
