McCoy: Rode a double at Kelso

Sky Bet

Tony McCoy made the long trip up to Kelso on Monday and was rewarded with two wins from his three rides.

The champion jockey rode a double on Katachenko and Sealous Scout, both trained by Donald McCain.

Fentara supplied Mark Walford with his first jumps winner when he landed the feature race at Kelso under Jake Greenall.

The mare was left clear three out in the Sheena Cochrane Celebration Handicap Chase after Fiddlers Reel unseated Ryan Mania.

Walford, who also struck at Redcar with Cornborough and only had his first winner at Newcastle on Saturday, said: "She's been very consistent and she loves this soft ground. I wasn't sure if she'd have still won if the other horse had completed.

"She tries her heart out and she was my last winner before I retired from the saddle. It just nice to get another win out of her."

Nick Alexander saddled a double courtesy of Landecker ridden by daughter Lucy and Present Potential partnered by son Kit.

Present Potential landed the Cazenove Capital Management Buccleuch Cup Maiden Hunters Chase and Kit Alexander said: "He gave me a great ride all the way. Although this was his first win under Rules he has been doing really well in point to points."

Steven Fox, who was third on Barachois Silver was hit with a 19-day suspension for using his whip above the permitted level. The amateur, who is based with Lucinda Russell, will be notified of the dates he has to serve by the BHA.

Miss Russell edged to within one of Len Lungo's Scottish record of 63 (set in 2002-03) when Lady Of Verona and Craig Nichol were left clear at the last in the mares handicap chase.

Harrys Whim, racing from 32lbs out of the handicap was still around 12-lengths clear when unshipping Henry Brooke at the final fence.
