Betfair Exchange Stayers’ Handicap Hurdle (Grade 3)—Main Fact

At Ascot the point scoring action started with Cheltenham Festival winner Imperial Aura. Imperial Aura asserted in the four runner Grade 2 to win by five lengths and score 30 points for 23 Ten To Follow teams. The Grade 2 Coral Hurdle came next and there was another small, but classy field. It was the outsider of the three, Song For Someone that got home in front, beating Call Me Lord by five lengths. Well done to Ten To Follow flat winner Grenville Davies who was the only player to select the Tom Symonds trained horse and score 30 points.

Up at Haydock Park Llandinabo Lad landed the opening Listed race, however this Tom Symonds horse wasn’t selected by any players, so no points were scored. Main Fact struck next, bursting through the darkness at Haydock to win his ninth race in a row! Well done to Trevor Shaw who was the only player to score 25 points for the win.

The highlight of the week’s action was undoubtedly Bristol De Mai winning the Grade 1 Betfair Chase for a third time, beating Clan Des Obeaux and Lostintranslation and confirming himself the king of Haydock Park. Congratulations Trevor Shaw and Paul Timms who both scored 35 points for the win!
