There was a link behind the winners of the two feature races at Lingfield on Tuesday.
George Margarson's Woolfall Sovereign (2-1 favourite) won the Lingfield Park Owners Group Handicap, with nearly £20,000 on offer, and the Charlie McBride-trained Harry Buckle (2-1 joint-favourite) took the Lingfield Park Marriott Hotel Handicap.
Woolfall Sovereign's career looked over last year due to a foot problem before he was saved by Margarson's farrier, a certain Harry Buckle.
Margarson said: "There's a nice story which links us with the earlier winner, Harry Buckle, who is named after the farrier. When this lad lost his form drastically we had terrible trouble with his feet. I thought he was a goner, but Harry did a cracking job."
Woolfall Sovereign is unbeaten over five furlongs and the trainer added: "I tried him over 10 furlongs at Newmarket when Gerald Mosse rode him, and on the way out he asked me what I was doing running him as he was a sprinter! He was proved to be right, but he got a good handicap mark.
"He holds the track record at Southwell and Wolverhampton and is unbeaten over five, so the aim will be to keep him at that. I think he can transfer that to turf, but all his best form is on the all-weather. He might have to go further afield, Dundalk and places like that. But this was the race we wanted to win."
Harry Buckle is another on the up and won his third on the bounce in impressive style under William Carson. "He's a progressive horse and he's improving all the time, the family don't mature until they are four, so he'll keep improving," said McBride.
"I've always thought a mile and a half wouldn't be a problem - he just got caught at Newmarket last year on soft ground and there's no doubt he gets it. He'll be kept on the go, trying to win more races with him."
Thomas Brown won his second race on Mubtadi (5-4 favourite) in the Book Tickets Online At lingfieldpark.co.uk Handicap. Unpenalised for his success last week as it came in an apprentice handicap, Ismail Mohammed's charge has been revitalised by a change in tactics.
The jockey said: "The last time we changed the tactics and they helped a lot and it was the same again today. He jumped from the gates better and they took me on up front, but he's won well."
