Lucinda Russell was on the mark in the Visit raceday-ready.comHandicap Chase with Lucky Flight, another all-the-way winner, this time by eight-lengths.

 

Winning jockey Stephen Mulqueen said: “He’s some horse and we get on great together. That’s five races we’ve won and you just let him get on with it.”

 

Gordon Elliott made it 196 winners at the track after Copperwell landed the opening Perth Supports Racing With Pride Maiden Hurdle under Sean Bowen.

 

The partnership led in the closing staged before seeing off Maifalki by two and a quarter length.
