Feature win at Musselburgh for Williams

VENETIA WILLIAMS maintained her excellent strike-rate at Musselburgh after Pentiffic landed the Scottish Racing Kilmany Cup under Aidan Coleman.

Out of form since a Doncaster fall last March, the gelding was gambled into 9-4 favourite before slamming Stormin Exit by 14-lengths.

Coleman said: "He's a horse that likes to have his own way in front so I tried to be as aggressive as I could on him. We turned in clear and I knew he'd take some beating from then. He's dropped a few pounds since Doncaster and hopefully he shouldn't go up too much as the race seemed to fall apart a bit in behind us."

Greenlaw trainer Sandy Thomson saddled his first winner since taking out a full licence in October when Any Given Moment stroke home courtesy of a nice ride from Ryan Mania in the 32Red.com Handicap Hurdle.

Thomson said: "This horse has had a few problems including a fractured pelvis so I'm delighted he's come back. We bought him for £2,000gns in May 2011 and he used to be with Donald McCain. We've got ten horses in training and hopefully this will be a change of luck."

Lucy Alexander teamed up with her father Nick to win the opening maiden hurdle with 7-1 chance Buffalo Ballet who outstayed odds on favourite Veloce by a length and a half.

"I've always thought the world of this horse and he's going to be a nice chaser one day," said the winning trainer.

John Dawson received a ten day ban for "not making sufficient effort to obtain the best possible placing" on Bolt From The Blue in the beginners chase.

The John Wade-trained 66-1 shot was never dangerous and finished fifth over 44-lengths behind the impressive winner Viva Colonia.
