IN-FORM Carluke trainer, Keith Dalgleish, celebrated his second double in two days on September 9.

Hot on the heels of two wins at Musselburgh the previous afternoon, his Belstane Stables enjoyed an across-the-card double with wins at Haydock and Thirsk.

He saddled Dark Profit to win the feature seven-furlong handicap and also won the five-furlong handicap with Hamidans Girl at the East Lothian track.

The next day, the in-form Taxmeifyoucan won a valuable 1m 6f handicap at Haydock, while stablemate Che Bella was the 7-1 winner of the one-mile handicap at Thirsk.

Also victorious over hurdles, Taxmeifyoucan has won his last three starts on the Flat and stayed on well for another impressive performance. “He’s in flying form,” said winning jockey, Jimmy Sullivan.

Che Bella stayed on well on her nursery debut, making light of the longer trip.

Keith originates from Hawick, as does fellow trainer, Iain Jardine, who is also enjoying a purple patch.

His victory trail continued at Haydock on September 9 where the Carrutherstown trainer completed a victorious double.

Mayleaf Shine was the 7-1 winner of a competitive sprint handicap, before Sepal made it four successive victories to land a valuable 1m 6 f handicap.

“She can be a bit fractious in the preliminaries, but the hood has worked wonders on Mayleaf Shine,” said Iain. “I’m delighted for my owners.

They include Hawick rugby stalwarts, Jim Hay and Bobby Froud.

“I don’t have many sprinters,” added Iain. “We thought she would run a big race as she handles soft ground and she ran really well in the apprentice race at York, where she won the race on her side.”

Sepal stayed on strongly under Langholm jockey, Jamie Gormley, to record his fourth win in a row for the Hetland Hill stable.

“It was her first time at the trip, but she loves the ground and they went for home a long way out,” said Iain, who could have the November Handicap in mind for his exciting charge.

Irvine jockey, Danny Tudhope, rode a winner at Leopardstown, when Suedois headed the one-mile stakes.

St Boswells owners, Paul and Clare Rooney, saw their colours carried to victory two days on the trot. Move to the Front posted a 10-1 win at Salisbury on September 7 for the Borders couple, and the following afternoon, Costa Percy was victorious at Musselburgh.

Trained at Lambourn by Clive Cox for the Borders couple, the two-year-old, in a first-time visor, travelled strongly to head the seven-furlong nursery.

“He copped on to the visor, but has always gone well and was my first two-year-old runner,” said the Berkshire trainer. “He has just taken time and I hope the handicapper is sensible with him,” he added.

Over the jumps at Sedgefield, the same afternoon, Northumberland jockey, Harry Reed, got Boy in a Bentley up by a short head to win the concluding conditional jockeys’ novice handicap hurdle race.

Two Hawick jockeys rode winners at Musselburgh, on September 8

Rowan Scott won the five-furlong handicap aboard 4-1 chance Landing Night, while Jason Hart headed the 1m 6f handicap on Chebsey Beau.

Massey’s Wood made a victorious bumper debut at Listowel on September 10.

The five-year-old was bred in Scotland by Crawford McNeill and Lesley Gillies – uncle and mother of Cheltenham-winning jockey, Campbell Gillies, who so tragically died.

Scottish connections had a good afternoon at Perth, on September 11. Langholm jockey, Dale Irving, rode Sir Tommy to a 50-1 win in the opening two-mile novice hurdle race.

Northumberland trainer, Susan Corbett, and jockey son, James, teamed up to take the stayers hurdle race with previous course victor Ebony Rose.

Apachee Prince, trained at Hawick by Alistair Whillans and ridden by Jedburgh jockey, Grant Cockburn, won the conditional jockeys’ handicap race.

The concluding bumper went to the Keith Dalgleish-trained Chanceanotherfive, making a victorious stable debut for the Carluke yard.

Hawick jockey Rowan Scott completed a double on the Flat at Hamilton on September 5.

He won the selling stakes on favourite Wonders Weave, before riding Souls in the Wind to a 12-1 win in the six-furlong handicap.

Danny Tudhope also celebrated a double at the meeting. He rode Fleetwood Jack to head the one-mile handicap, and win the 1m 3f handicap on Indian Chief.
