BROADWAY JOE completed his hat-trick in impressive fashion at Musselburgh’s final meeting of the year on Monday.

 

Partnered by Brian Hughes with his regular jockey Danny McMenamin sidelined, the 13/8 favourite slammed Just Call Me Al by nine and a half lengths in the Watch On Racing TV Novices’ Handicap Chase.

 

Winning trainer Nick Alexander said: “I’m very pleased with that as it’s not easy to win three races in-a-row. He’s clearly very progressive and I hope the handicapper isn’t too harsh on him.

 

“That’s him unbeaten in three races over fences and he should stay three miles. There is a chance he could return to Musselburgh for something on New Year’s Day.”

 

After surviving a stewards’ inquiry, Rapid Raider was another to reel off a three-timer, in his case in the Join Racing TV Now Handicap Chase.

 

The Lucinda Russell-trained 15/8 favourite hampered runner-up Lastofthecosmics on the run-in and winning jockey Stephen Mulqueen was given a three-day careless riding ban.
