GRAND National winning trainer Lucinda Russell completed a double at Musselburgh, on January 19.

The East Lothian track survived multiple morning inspections and racing went ahead, with the going officially 'soft'.

Misfits gave the Milnathort trainer the first leg of her double when, ridden by Grand National-winning jockey, Derek Fox, he landed the three-mile handicap chase. Jump for Dough ran his rivals ragged to complete the double, winning the three-mile handicap hurdle race in the hands of Selkirk teenager, Thomas Willmott.

The gelding was six pounds higher for his course and distance victory under the same jockey last time. “He gave me a great feel as he did the last day. He’s even done it in better style,” said Willmott.

Carluke trainer, Keith Dalgleish, landed the concluding bumper when I’m to Blame justified favouritism to take the spoils for St Boswells owners, Paul and Clare Rooney. The five-year-old was maintaining an unbeaten record.

The Rooneys were back in the winner’s enclosure at Fontwell, on January 21, when Melrose Boy justified favouritism, cruising home 50 lengths clear in the novice hurdle race.

The previous afternoon, Jedburgh jockey, Callum Bewley, rode Donna’s Diamond to a 20-1 win in the concluding handicap hurdle race at Haydock.

Four-times course and distance winner, Testa Rossa, landed the feature handicap on the all-weather at Newcastle, on January 17. Jim Goldie’s charge posted a comfortable success at 5-1, for the Renfrewshire trainer.
