Jim Goldie was in the winners’ enclosure at Musselburgh on Monday after Graces Quest stormed away with the Watch On Racing TV Handicap under Paul Mulrennan.


The Uplawmoor filly, send off a popular 11-4 favourite, led fully two furlongs from home before trouncing The New Marwan by four and three-quarter lengths.


Goldie said: “We fancied her to win here last time and she was only just beaten into third place. Hopefully she will continue to do well over the rest of the season.”


Mulrennan was impressed after coming from off the pace to land the opening juvenile maiden on Karl Burke-trained Cathy Come Home. 


“She’s the best two-year-old I’ve sat on for a while,” the jockey said after his debutant partner had beaten Chattel Village by a length and three-quarters. “She jumped nice and travelled nicely into the race and won with her head in her chest – she could be anything.”


Connor Beasley was another jockey to complete a double, in his case with Aquamas and John Kirkup, who was the outsider of the field when springing a 14-1 surprise in the featured £13,000 Join Racing TV Now Handicap over five-furlongs.
