PJ McDonald: On target in feature Musselburgh
P J McDonald landed the £60,000 toteScoop6 Edinburgh Cup at Musselburgh on Richard Fahey-trained Hesketh Bank.
The Irishman, who won the 2007 Scottish National aboard Hot Weld, brought the 33-1 chance with a perfectly-timed run to pip Master Of Finance by a neck.
McDonald said: "This is one of my biggest wins since I switched to the Flat and these are the days you savour. Scotland has always been a very place for me.
"This horse was very green and I had to straighten him out. He's had very little racing and should improve - he's probably better than the bare result and I'm delighted."
The Keith Dalgleish-trained Ko Cache, the smallest horse on parade by some margin, may end up at Royal Ascot for the Queen Mary Stakes after she sprung a surprise in the Edinburgh Castle Stakes.
