Risk worth taking for QuinnHeadlines
Calculated Risk takes to jumping well

Calculated Risk (14-1) looks another smart prospect for John Quinn and ran out a good winner of Doncaster's Yorkshire Radio Supporting Yorkshire Racing Juvenile Hurdle.

Quinn is steadily building up the quality of his National Hunt horses and certainly has the knack with juvenile hurdlers. He won the Triumph last season with Countrywide Flame, has a leading contender this year in Kashmir Peak.

Having looked tapped for toe turning into the straight, Dougie Costello bided his time before pouncing late on Calculated Risk for a six-length win from Aazif.

Costello said: "This lad is a half-brother to King's Quay who was a very good horse for John. The ground was a bit on the slow side for him and just turning in I thought they'd have to stop up front At the second-last I knew I'd win though."

Back Bob Back (9-2) put in a fine round of jumping to take the Saint Gobain Weber Handicap Chase for Tom George and Paddy Brennan.

"At Newbury last time he ran too free and the better ground today helped him. He goes well fresh so he won't be out for three or four weeks. We know he likes it here and at Newbury," said George.

Anthony Honeyball was slightly disappointed with Eleven Fifty Nine who had to work to land the odds in the yessselectrical.co.uk Mares' 'National Hunt' Maiden Hurdle. The 1-4 favourite had to be hard ridden by Rachael Green to beat Definite Ruby by half a length was not on the cards.

"It's mission accomplished I suppose and she jumped tidy but I'm a bit disappointed. It was a flat performance, although she galloped at the same speed all the way up the straight. When the ground is better in the spring she'll have loftier targets," said Honeyball.

Henry Daly's Toby Belch defied a 10-month absence in the Pegler Yorkshire NovicesĀ“ Handicap Chase under Robert Thornton, and his trainer said: "It's not so much a question of if he's straight it's more if he has a cut at his fences."

Keith Reveley's Harvey's Hope sprang a 20-1 surprise in the Nuffield Health & Fitness Doncaster Handicap Hurdle and the Saltburn handler and his son, James, doubled up in the bumper with Dance Of Time (7-2).
