KINGSTON Lisle trainer Heather Main moved within one of her best annual total of 13 winners when Marshal Dan gave her a second successive triumph in the Matthew Fedrick Farriery Handicap at Newbury.

Successful 12 months ago in the seven-furlong contest with Childesplay, Main was at Doncaster and missed seeing the three-year-old pick up nicely in the hands of Robert Havlin to beat Lucky Louie by a length.

Her husband, James, was on hand to welcome the winner, though, and he said: “We were worried that there would not be enough pace on in the race. Next time we might let him do a little bit more.

“We are very pleased with the horse and hopefully he will progress from here.”

Koeman scored in good style for West Ilsley trainer Mick Channon at Ascot.

The son of Dutch Art, named after the Netherlands football team manager Ronald Koeman, stayed on well under John Egan to claim a mile and a half handicap by a neck from Bajan Gold.

Earlier in the week, Channon landed a 5-1 across-the card double with Solesmes (13-8 favourite) at Lingfield and Iconic Belle (13-8 joint favourite) at Leicester.

David Egan powered Solesmes home by a head from Capla Gilda in a six-furlong claiming stakes, while Scott McCullagh gave Iconic Belle a well-judged front-running ride to secure his second success for the yard in a mile and a quarter handicap.

He also struck with Jazeel, who landed a mile and a quarter handicap at Sandown by two lengths from You’re Hired under Andrea Atzeni.

Blewbury trainer Eve Johnson Houghton sent out Vixen to follow up her Kempton win by gaining a half-length verdict in a mile handicap at Lingfield under Eddy Greatrex.

The Woodway handler and Greatrex also struck with Optimum Time, who sprang a 14-1 surprise in a mile handicap at Windsor.

Plunger, from Paul Cole’s Whatcombe stables, unshipped jockey Robert Havlin before the start of a seven-furlong handicap at Leicester, but it made no difference during the race as he finished strongly to score by a neck from Garth Rockett.

Cole enjoyed more success when Walkman got off the mark at the second attempt by taking a six-furlong maiden stakes at Salisbury under Raul Da Silva.
