Pembrokeshire’s James Bowen had only two rides at Warwick in midweek and won on both of them – an 89-1 double (writes Brian Lee).
Both were trained by fellow Welshman Christian Williams at Ogmore-By-Sea.
The double was initiated when six-year-old Fifty Shades, a 5-1 chance, won the handicap chase by a length from The Last Bridge, who was ridden by champion jockey Richard Johnson.
That was impressive! Fifty Shades shows he has stamina in abundance as he wins the Shortland Horne Handicap Chase over 3m 5f by a large margin with @james_bowen_ on board for @CWilliamsRacing 👏 pic.twitter.com/3204kIwFaA

Fifty Shades’ stable-mate Conas Taoi finished a further one-and-a-quarter lengths back in third place.
Then, in the mares handicap hurdle, 14-1 shot Lace Bonnet got home by half-a-length from the lowly weighted Infiniti to make it a memorable day for trainer and rider.
