Turner: Back among the winners at Lingfield on Thursday

Sky Bet

Hayley Turner was quickly back into the winning habit at Lingfield, just two days and two rides into her comeback from an ankle operation.

After finishing unplaced at the course on Wednesday, Homeboy (7-4) helped her to a very easy three-length victory over the 6-4 favourite Dark Lane in the Lingfield Selling Stakes.

The Group One-winning jockey later doubled her tally by poking Wom (12-1) through a gap in the nick of time in the Follow Us On Twitter At LingfieldPark Handicap.

It had taken Homeboy three seasons and 27 starts to finally get off the mark in a similar event on Tuesday's card, and it was rather uncharacteristic of trainer Marcus Tregoning to send a horse out again so quickly.

"There have been plenty of days where he hasn't run well, but while he is in form, it made sense to go again," said Tregoning, who went to £6,500 at the auction to hold onto him.

Turner, who had her operation in November, said: "He took off with me, more or less! It's nice to have a winner, especially as he hasn't been the easiest of horses."
