Gordon Brown – Race Reporter

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.

Well Educated, sent off at 100/30, continued his good form for George Bewley when landing Kelso’s feature race on Sunday.

Ridden by the Appleby trainer’s son Jonathon, the Cumbrian raider saw off Jungle Jack by two and three-quarter lengths in the Look Who’s 65 Elliot Henderson Handicap Hurdle.

“That’s his sixth win for us since we bought him out of a selling hurdle at Hexham two years ago,” Bewley senior said. “He’s won us over £53,000 so that’s around £40,000 profit, which isn’t a bad return at all.

“He’s not long come back in for the summer and that’s just his third run of the spring. He’s done well to defy the penalty for winning at Hexham the other night and the plan is to go back there in about three weeks time.”

Lucinda Russell completed a 54/1 double with Chapel Green and Somebody’s Fortune.

The pair were both ridden by Derek Fox as he clinched Scottish Racing’s top jump jockey in Scotland award, which ended on the border track’s final meeting of the spring.

The big Ladies Day crowd was brought to its feet as Geordies Dream took care of fast-finishing Ravenscraig Castle by half a length in the opening J A Wilson Contractors Novices’ Hurdle.
