Lavelle in sparkling formHeadlines
Robbie on his way to victory

Emma Lavelle enjoyed a red-letter day with an across-the-card 125-1 four-timer from as many runners, which included a double at Doncaster.

Easter Meteor and Court By Surprise struck for the Andover trainer at the South Yorkshire venue, with Highland Lodge doing the business at Cheltenham and Court In Motion successful at Lingfield.

"An unbelievable day and all in proper races. I wish I could bottle it. It's the first time I've had four in a day. We'd had a treble just once before," she said after Court By Surprise (6-1) completed the four-timer by a nose in the BetVictor Non Runner Free Bet At Cheltenham Handicap Chase under Dougie Costello.

"Court By Surprise deserved a decent win. He's just got better and better."

Easter Meteor (2-1 favourite) opened the Lavelle scoring at Doncaster in the Follow BetVictorRacing On Twitter Handicap Chase. Making all under Dominic Elsworth, he saw off Midnight Sail by four and a half lengths.

The trainer said: "Easter Meteor did it really well. He's a lovely, honest horse and he jumps his fences properly. He gains ground at every fence and that makes a lot of difference. He'll go up in the weights so we'll just see, but it would be lovely to go to the Cheltenham Festival with him. He likes good ground."

Elsworth also rode a brace, having struck on 40-1 stunner Wiesentraum in the 'In Loving Memory of Scott Dobson' Beginners' Chase for Lucy Wadham, but he was given a three-day ban (December 30 to January 1) for using his whip without giving his mount time to respond.

Robbie (9-2) won for the first time away from his beloved Southwell with a cosy success in the Download The BetVictor Spincast App Now Handicap Hurdle. His previous three wins had been there, but Keith Reveley's lightly raced eight-year-old showed he was not just a one-track horse.

Given a confident ride by 7lb claimer Jonathan England, Robbie shrugged Ulys Du Charmil aside to score by nine lengths. "He's had very little racing for his age as he's had a few niggling problems so he's probably still improving," said Reveley.

Midnight Oscar (15-8) confirmed the promise of a Ludlow third on his jumps debut to land the crownhotel-bawtry.com Novices' Hurdle. Nick Scholfield brought the Kim Bailey-trained five-year-old to lead after the third-last flight and he held Kaysersberg by a length and a quarter.
