ASTON Rowant trainer Lawney Hill saddled Billy Twyford (7-1) to claim a last-gasp success under David Bass in a handicap hurdle at Wetherby.
SUPERIOR Quality (10-1) made the 674-mile round trip from Charlie Longsdon’s Chipping Norton yard to Musselburgh yesterday pay off by landing the Albert Bartlett Scottish Trial under Noel Fehily.
