Troy Batchelor (14), Peter Kildemand (11+3), Hans Andersen (11) and Jason Doyle (10+1) all hit double figures for the home side.

Freddie Lindgren (13) and Ty Proctor (8+1) were the only opposition riders to provide any sort of resistance.

The win takes Swindon to within six points of table topping Poole.

Peterborough Panthers clinched maximum points in the final heat as they beat Coventry 49-41 at the East of England Showground.

The meeting was marred by two crashes which saw a rider from each side withdrawn as Olly Allen and Kenni Larsen were sidelined.

Kenneth Bjerre led Peterborough home with 14, but it was Michael Jepsen Jensen's pass of Chris Harris in Heat 15 which gave the home side maximum league points.

Bjerre said: "It's a good result for us and of course I'm happy with how it went for me. It's just nice to have a meeting without any rain, and the track was great.

"I felt fast and I know in Heat 1 I was close to the track record so I had plenty of speed in the bike. We're all pleased and looking forward to the meetings after the World Cup."

Away reserve Adam Roynon was the only Coventry rider to hit double figures.
