Teenager Jack Tudor landed a double at Sunday’s Melton Hunt Club Point-To-Point at Garthorpe and both were trained by his father Jonathan Tudor who is also having a cracking season.
The 17-year-old Jac, from Merthyr Mawr, rode a winner at the Gelligaer Farmers fixture on Saturday and followed that with his two-timer.

Llancarfan’s Evan Williams won last year’s Haydock Swinton Handicap Hurdle with Silver Streak, but had to settle for third place this time.

Evan, though, was back in the winner’s enclosure on Sunday after his seven-year-old Marble Moon won the novices’ handicap chase at Ludlow.
The bottom weighted Marble Moon, a 6-1 chance, won by six lengths from the well fancied Heydour.
