Gordon has a wealth of experience of racing through his background in the written and broadcast media. His current principle role is reporting and supporting the scene in Scotland on Racing TV and relaying the latest news with Scottish angles.

LUCINDA RUSSELL was the trainer to follow at Ayr on Tuesday as she saddled a 230-1 treble courtesy  of Fiveafterfour, Netywell and Camp Belan.

The first two winners were a partnered by Patrick Wadge, a double that saw him return to the head of the conditional jockeys’ table.

Russell said: “It’s great to see Patrick doing so well as it took him almost a ear to ride his very first winner a few seasons ago! We will do our best to get him as many winners as possible although there are other lads to keep going in the yard as well.”

Nick Alexander was on the mark with Sean Quinlan-ridden Arctic Row in the Virgin Bet Best Odds Daily Handicap Chase, a qualifier for the Go North Monet’s Garden Series.

“We might go for the final of this series at Carlisle next month,” the winning trainer said. “Sean gave him a nice ride and kept him wide to give him a good sight of the fences and also to find some better ground.”

Hawick pair Donald Whillans and Craig Nichol struck with Shoeshine Boy in the Virgin Bet Daily Price Boosts Handicap Hurdle.
