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.

PERTH regular Petite Rhapsody, set to make his 11th appearance at his local venue, will be cheered on by his loyal band of owners in the Visit Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle.


Trained just down the M90 by Lucinda Russell, the seven-year-old carries the colours of the enthusiastic Tay Valley Chasers Club, many of whom turn up sporting their green and yellow silks.


The only win of the gelding’s career so far came at April’s Perth festival, a strike which also saw jockey Patrick Wadge open his account at the 64th attempt.


Dual champion jockey Brian Hughes has four rides – all trained by Laura Morgan – and they include And The New in the £13,000 Heidseck Monopole Party Goes On Handicap Chase.


And The New, a close third in the Perth Silver Cup earlier this month, steps up to 2m 4f as he bids to opening his account over fences at the third attempt.
