Dwyer - won on Dangerous Midge.

Dangerous Midge ran away with the Bet365 Old Newton Cup at Haydock to turn what looked a competitive renewal into a procession.

Martin Dwyer had Brian Meehan's four-year-old sat just behind the pace-making Almiqdaad and when he took up the running two furlongs out nothing could get near him.

Throughout the final furlong the 17-2 chance went further and further clear to come home in splendid isolation, with Demolition some eight lengths back in second and top weight Fiery Lad in third.

Dwyer said: "He's a good horse, he's improving and there's not many miles on the clock.

"He tends to race lazily and we worked him in blinkers to wake him up a bit.

"I gave him a forceful ride today and he felt good."
