Pistol hits the targetHeadlines
Pistol gets it right at Newbury

Ex-Sir Michael Stoute charge Pistol fired at the second time of asking for Philip Hobbs in the Betfred Hat Trick Heaven Juvenile Hurdle at Newbury.

Jumping looks to be much more the game for the son of High Chaparral, who could not win on the Flat but had finished second on his course-and-distance debut last month.

The 4-5 favourite set off in front and was perhaps just getting a bit lonely halfway down the home straight, as he kicked again and Sash Of Honour could only finish two and a half lengths behind.

Jockey Richard Johnson said: "He looks the sort of horse who should get better and better over the next 12 months. He looks like more of a chaser and has plenty of improvement in him."

Arbeo sloshed through the mud to continue the good run of Diana Grissell.

The Brightling Park trainer provided an emotional final winner as Folkestone closed the doors last week and Arbeo (4-1) had also run nicely when second at Fakenham. Jockey Sam Thomas was essentially always in control of the Betfred Double Delight Novices' Handicap Chase to come two lengths clear of Emperor's Choice.

Grissell said: "He loved the ground. He has taken a while, as he has had some niggling problems, but hopefully he is over them now and is getting more settled."
