Gordon Brown's Gold Cup Review: Beeves wins the Gold Cup at Perth 2017

By 4th June 2017

BEEVES won a dramatic Horizon Parking City Of Perth Gold Cup as he collared a faltering Aerlite Supreme in the shadow of the post to score by a neck.

The 12/1 winner is trained in Staffordshire by Jennie Candlish and winning jockey Sean Quinlan said: "I'd probably settled for second jumping the last but then Adam's (Wedge) horse stopped close home and I managed to switch to the stands side and get back up. He's been a real star and we won here the time before and at Fakenham. He will probably have a break now as he's been pretty busy."

In front of a bumper 8,000 crowd, Warren Greatrex enjoyed his first course success when Attest completed a hat-trick in the Perth Is The Place To Be Handicap Hurdle.

Winning jockey Harry Bannister, maintaining his 50 per cent Perth strike-rate, said: "I'd say this was the most impressive of his wins so far. He's in very good form and has done it very nicely. It's been a lucky course for me and there a great atmosphere with such a big crowd today."

Vosne Romanee, trained by Dr Richard Newland, made a winning debut over fences for Sam Twiston-Davies when pipping Chitu by a neck in the Coretrax Novices' Chase.

Twiston-Davies said: "He jumped better than he had been doing over hurdles. This will have done his confidence the world of good and he should might a nice horse for the summer. I love coming to Perth as they always make you feel so welcome."
