Bowens Capture Kilmany Cup For Second Year Running
PETER and Sean Bowen landed the Edinburgh Gin Kilmany Chase at Perth’s BRAW! Raceday for the second year running as Viens Chercher followed up the win of Big Buck’s 12 months ago.
The Welsh raider, sent off at 3-1, slammed Richard Johnson-ridden Out Sam by four lengths in the £22,000 three miler.
Johnson had earlier struck for Gordon Elliott on 1-7 hot-pot Braid Blue in the opening Multi Award Winning Something Special Flowers Novices’ Hurdle.
Lucy Alexander teamed up with her trainer father Nick as Always Tipsy lifted the Lewis Capaldi Gie’Ing It Laldy Handicap Hurdle at the rewarding odds of 9-2.
Brian Hughes took the riding honours when booting home a 93-1 treble on Witness In Court, Amalfi Doug and William Of Orange.
Next up at Perth are four July meetings including Family Raceday on Sunday, 14 July. In the same month the Scone racecourse also hosts afternoon racedays on Thursday, 4 July and Wednesday, 31 July as well as an evening fixture on Tuesday, 30 July.
