Winning Feeling For Three Welsh Riders At Exeter

Welsh riders  Connor Brace, Lorcan Williams and Sean Bowen all caught the judge’s eye at Exeter.

Brace took the opening handicap hurdle on Phillip Hobbs’s Smarty Wild. 

Just over 40 minutes later, Williams was successful on the top weighted Truckers Lodge for Paul Nicholls  and later in the afternoon Sean Bowen won the principal race on the Evan Williams trained Billy Broncho.

In the previous race, Williams’s daughter Isabel riding her father’s 33-1 chance Firebird Flyer was beaten  just three parts of a length by Jai Froid.

While over at Newcastle,  trainer Tim Vaughan’s  301 mile journey from the Vale of Glamorgan paid off when  his stable jockey west Wales’ Alan Johns won the opening novices’ handicap hurdle on 5-1 chance Oriental Cross.
