Lily Pinchin made it three wins from three at Cartmel last Saturday as she took the lady riders’ handicap hurdle on board Beeno.

Pinchin rode an excellent race aboard the ten-year-old for Penrith trainer Dianne Sayer, pushing the horse out to the front early on and keeping him there all the way to the end to a seven length victory, ahead of Bryony Frost on German horse Lovato.

The winning jockey said: “It was always the plan to go from the front and he’s just got an heart of a lion. He’s so brave and tough and he just keeps going.

“I rode him last time and he’s just an hero and it feels great to win such a race. I thought for a moment Bryony might catch me but he just found more.”

Aside from the racing, Stanley Johnson, father of Conservative leader candidate Boris, was also present at the races, and he commented on the unique course.

He said, “It’s a beautiful place and we are here as guests of the Cavendishes and of Lucy from Holker Hall and what a day and what an atmosphere the place gives.”

Another old winner at the course in seven-year-old Old Salt provided Henry Brooke with a winner to move him into second in the jockeys challenge behind holder Brian Hughes.

However, his luck changed for the worse in the penultimate race of the afternoon, which was won by Rachael McDonald on Pena Dorada, when he fell aboard the David Thompson-trained Shaiyzar.
