ARTARMON was an impressive all-the-way winner of the £24,000 Luftness New Supports MRT Caledonian Cup at Musselburgh on Saturday.
Trained by Michael Bell and ridden by Clifford Lee, the 5/2 favourite slammed top-weight Lynwood Gold by three and a quarter lengths.
Lee said afterwards: “He’s a lovely big horse and I’m grateful to Mr Bell for giving me the ride. It was all pretty straightforward and he is a pleasure to sit on.
“We had quite an easy lead and he just quickened away in the straight. His wins and best form has come on various courses so he’s very versatile too.”
Linda Perratt struck with Lucky Violet in the EBF Stallions Breeding Winners Scottish Premier Series Fillies’ Handicap.
The winning East Kilbride-based trainer said: “She’s been an absolute star for us as that’s the third time she’s won this season. Joe Fanning rode her during the winter on the all-weather and said she would win races on turf so a lot of thanks must go to him.”
