Welsh jockey Connor Brace had two rides at far flung Perth in Scotland for his guvnor, Cotswold trainer Fergal O’Brien, and won on both (writes Brian Lee).
The former national novice champion point-to-point rider won the Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle on six-year-old Carolls Milan, who was completing a three-timer and then took the closing Novices Handicap Hurdle on the top-weighted Paint The Dream.
The former, a 3-1 chance, got home by three parts of a length from NiceAndEasy and the latter, who was made the 4-1 favourite in a field of 14 runners, won by three lengths from Amberose completing a 19-1 double.
