RACING fans get the chance to see behind the scenes when Charlie Longsdon hosts an open afternoon at his Chipping Norton stables on Saturday.

Visitors will be able to look round the yard at Hull Farm, which is home to the likes of Our Kaempfer, Forth Bridge and Snow Leopardess, from 1pm.

A select schooling session and a parade of members of his 80-plus string will follow. Admission is free.

Among those on show is set to be Western Miller, who provided new stable jockey Jonathan Burke with his first winner for the yard when making an impressive debut over fences at Stratford on Saturday.

The six-year-old gelding produced a terrific round of jumping to make all the running and slam Too Many Diamonds by 23 lengths in a novices’ chase over an extended two miles and three furlongs.

On the Flat, Chastleton trainer John Gallagher is hoping Major Pusey makes the cut for the Portland Handicap at Doncaster on Saturday after his sprinter returned to winning ways at Haydock.

Appreciating the application off a first-time tongue-tie, the five-year-old bounded clear in a five-furlong handicap to beat Magical Dreamer by a length and a half under Fergus Sweeney.
