Ladweb completed a quick-fire hat-trick of wins for Chastleton trainer John Gallagher with a smooth success at Bath.

The four-year-old, winner of his previous two starts at Brighton and Nottingham, overcame a further rise in the ratings to land an extended five furlong handicap in great style.

Appreciating the rain-softened ground, the chestnut gelding stormed clear under Joey Haynes to beat New Decade by two and a half lengths.
