No dramas for L'EldoradoHeadlines
L'Eldorado

L'Eldorado delighted his trainer Chris Bealby when defying top weight of 11st 12lb in the Follow gg.com On Facebook Handicap Chase at Towcester.

The seven-year-old was stepping down in class after finishing fifth in a Listed contest at Wetherby a month ago and was just too good for the opposition.

Tom Messenger set sail some way from home on the 7-2 shot, who responded gamely to shrug aside the challenge of Little Chip and score by six lengths.

Bealby said: "It was a very classy performance carrying top weight on that ground and I think he can win a nice little handicap somewhere in the spring. They never want to run again too quickly when they've up that Towcester hill with top weight, so after Christmas we'll see what there is."

Conditional rider Ben Poste enjoyed a double, striking first on Abruzzi (18-1) in the Haygain Hay Steamers Clean Healthy Forage Conditional Jockeys' Novices' Hurdle. Leading before the last, the Tom Symonds-trained four-year-old kept on to land his first win by two and three-quarter lengths.

Abruzzi had been beaten no less than 76 lengths on his hurdling debut at Kempton after being badly hampered.

Symonds said: "He had a rough old time at Kempton, so it was good to see him back and jumping confidently round here. He nearly got knocked over there and from then on he was struggling and flat out. He lost his confidence completely. We gave him time to get over it and he showed a lot of grit today."

Poste made it a double on Dancing Daffodil, who followed up a Ludlow success when seeing off Prince Pippin in the Best Racing Blogs On gg.com Handicap Hurdle. The 4-7 shot took it up after jumping what was the final flight as the last two hurdles were omitted due to the sun to score by a length and a half.

There were also braces for trainer Donald McCain and jockey Jason Maguire courtesy of Moscow Presents and Halo Moon.

Moscow Presents (11-4) capitalised on a final-flight error by Present View to take the Haygain Hay Steamers Clean Healthy Forage Maiden Hurdle by three and a half lengths from the odds-on favourite, and Halo Moon (9-4) made a winning debut in the bumper, beating favourite High Ville by nine lengths.
