Nick Alexander and Lucinda Russell both recorded doubles at Kelso as Scottish trainers dominated the final racing action of the year north of the border.

Russell struck with Mighty Thunder and Alizee de Janeiro while Alexander chipped in with Calivigny and Elvis Mail both partnered by daughter Lucy.

Alexander is enjoying a real hot streak and the Kinneston handler said: “The horses are running really well and it was great to win the big race at Wetherby on Boxing Day with Lake View Lad.

“We’ve not been doing much differently and only changed the feed because it was cheaper!”
Derek Fox enjoyed his first strike since returning back surgery as Alizee de Janeiro impressed in the mare’s hurdle.

The mare carries the colours of Debs Thomson, of one the The Golf Widows responsible for 2017 Grand National hero One For Arthur.

Langholm’s James Ewart saw Charmant follow up his Sedgefield success with the minimum of fuss and the six-year-old grey will take some stopping on his hat-track attempt.

The £20,000 feature race, the Children’s Immunology Trust Novices’ Chase, went to Shades Of Midnight for Sandy Thomson and Brian Hughes.

The 8/13 favourite was only pipped by subsequent Grade 1 winner Paisley Park over hurdles recently.
Thomson said: “That was job done today and I’ve no idea whether he’ll run next over hurdles or fences. The ground was quick enough for him.”

All seven races went to Scottish-trained horses and the clean sweep was completed as Thomson sealed a double in the lucky last with Liam Quinlan-ridden Dimple.
