Swingbridge was an impressive winner of the £17,000 Heineken UK Handicap Chase at Perth on Tuesday night.


Trained by Gordon Elliott and ridden by Richard Johnson, the 11/2 chance slammed stable companion Flaxen Flare by an emphatic eleven lengths.


Johnson said: “He’s travelled really the whole way for me and enjoying stepping back up to three miles. The race sort of fell apart a bit but he’s won nicely and enjoyed the easier ground.”


Highflying brothers Dan and Harry Skelton teamed up to land the Glenfarg Novices’ Chase with evens favourite One For Billy.


Harry Skelton said: “It was a good performance under a penalty and he jumped well. They’ve done a great job with the ground and the prize money makes it worthwhile coming all the way up for.”
