Yesyoucan hangs on in thrillerHeadlines

Brian Ellison's Yesyoucan just lasted home in a thrilling finish to the Try Racing Fixed Odds On Betfair Handicap Hurdle at Haydock.

Market leader Double Ross adopted the front-running tactics that had seen him strike gold at Cheltenham last weekend and he looked likely to follow up under a penalty when kicking a couple of lengths clear soon after the home turn.

However, 14-1 shot Yesyoucan, his closest pursuer throughout, went by him in the straight under Danny Cook and just as it looked as though he had victory sewn up, there was further drama after the final flight, as the heavily-backed Black Thunder came from a mile back under Ruby Walsh, but his challenge was all too late and he was a neck behind passing the post.

Ellison said: "That was great. I think the first two probably had the run of the race as they've quickened up and left the rest, but this is a nice horse.

"That's only his fourth run for me and he's won twice and finished second twice. I don't think he needs the ground this testing. I wouldn't run him on firm but he'd be fine on most ground.

"We'll see what the handicapper does before we make any other plans."

Walsh picked up a two-day ban (December 9 and 10) for his use of the whip on Black Thunder.
