Kilfilichen Bay followed up his Southwell success for Chipping Norton trainer Charlie Longsdon with a convincing victory at Hunti-ngdon on Bank Holiday Mon-day.

The six-year-old was always travelling well under Noel Fehily in a handicap hurdle over three miles and two furlongs, before hitting the front two flights from home.

A blunder at the last failed to stop the 8-11 favourite as he galloped home a length and three-quarters clear of Champion Versions.

Chastleton trainer John Gallagher sent out a winner as Warwick staged its last Flat meeting after 307 years before switching to jumps only when Amber Crystal got off the mark in an extended five-furlong nursery.

The two-year-old filly showed real battling qualities for Martin Dwyer to beat Muzarkash by half a length after being headed inside the final furlong.
