RACING: Longsdon's delighted
Charlie Brooks sent out Hopstrings from his Sarsden stables, near Chipping Norton, to win at Bangor on Bank Holiday Monday.
Sent off the 6-4 favourite, the five-year-old mare stayed on well under Wayne Hutchinson to beat Swift Escape by five lengths in a maiden hurdle over two and a half miles.
On the Flat, Alpha Delta Whisky struck for Chastleton trainer John Gallagher at Goodwood.
The five-year-old gelding made virtually all the running with Michael JM Murphy on board in a five-furlong handicap, before holding off Wooden King by a head.
