Real deal for McCain and MaguireHeadlines
Real Milan

Real Milan helped Donald McCain and Jason Maguire boost what are already three-figure seasonal totals for the trainer and jockey in the Download BetVictor Spincast App Now Novices' Chase at Ayr.

Maguire was the first to reach a century of winners late last month as he vies with Richard Johnson for second place in the jockey standings, while Cheshire-based McCain is the most successful trainer in the country in terms of numbers.

Real Milan has now only been beaten twice in seven starts and has a perfect record from two starts over fences as he supplemented a ready victory at Carlisle by pulling away from Netminder.

While not flattered by his margin of four lengths, the 1-2 favourite still needed to be scrubbed along by Maguire to keep track of the leader and only asserted properly approaching the last.

The jockey said: "The ground is drying up, so it's very tacky out there, but I was very pleased with his jumping. He might be helped by going in a more competitive race, but he is two from two and has done nothing wrong. He jumped the ditch well, and by then the race was sort of over."

Peter Buchanan, who steered home two of Lucinda Russell's treble on the first day of the meeting, helped continue their momentum in the Follow Us On Twitter At BetVictorRacing Maiden Hurdle. It was a flawless hurdling debut from 5-4 favourite No Deal, who had also won a bumper and a point-to-point.

On a day of family combinations, Emma Sayer enjoyed a memorable first victory over fences aboard her mother Dianne's Sergeant Pink (3-1) in the BetVictor Exclusive Antepost Offer Cheltenham 2013 Handicap Chase.

The cheekpieced gelding looked reluctant during the course of the race but suddenly revived his interest in the home straight and cut down the 5-4 favourite Gleann Na Ndochais, who looked booked for victory up until the final fence.

If Sayer requires a role model, she would be advised to choose Lucy Alexander, who excelled once again in the BetVictor Cheltenham Festival Antepost Pioneers Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Chase on the game grey mare Tipsy Dara (11-4), trained by her father Nick.

Callum Whillans was another to be bold from the front on his father Donald's King Kalium (13-2) in the BetVictor Non Runner Free Bet At Cheltenham Handicap Hurdle and they had enough gas left in the tank to hold 10-11 favourite Rowan Road by two and three-quarter lengths.
