Phelan well representedHeadlines
Representingceltic

Pat Phelan's Representingceltic won his third jumpers' bumper on the bounce at Lingfield, with 2008 Jewson Novices' Handicap Chase winner Finger Onthe Pulse managing only third.

Jumping problems have prevented the winner (4-7 favourite) from reaching the heights hoped for him at one stage, but he is developing a name for himself in these events and held on by a short head from Border Station in the Follow Lingfield Park On Facebook Jumpers' Bumper under Colin Bolger.

"Three in a row is very difficult for horses like him. What would be ideal is a programme of these races, as 0-95 handicappers have lost a year's livelihood really and there has to be some compensation. The owners of these horses depend on their racing, not for money but for fun," said Phelan.

"This lad has his issues jumping so to get three on the spin at this stage of his life is great. He looked like being a very good horse early on. We'll have to see if his jumping has improved."

The former Barry and Charlie Hills-trained Ransom Note was smart on the Flat at one stage but could finish only third in the Billeshurst Wood Jumpers' Bumper behind Mick Channon's Foster's Road (16-1), who wore down Shernando and Tony McCoy close home.

Easily the most impressive winner of the day was the Seamus Mullins-trained Giveagirlachance (16-1) in the Lingfield Interactive Mares' Maiden Open National Hunt Flat Race.

As a relation of Ireland's bumper king Willie Mullins, winning these races comes naturally to the Wiltshire handler, who also saddled the third, Chambray Dancer. The winner obliged by an eased-down six lengths under Andrew Thornton.

Mullins told At The Races: "Andrew deserves the credit for this as he had ridden her work at Lambourn and said she was in the sales, and we went and bought her on spec. She'd been working well at home. She came there very easy and I thought he'd gone a bit soon, but it's plainly the way she likes to run."

Thornton added: "It's my first day back after 10 days off. I had a fall in the paddock here and tore my bicep so doing 10st 7lb wasn't easy, but she was worth it. She's a nice prospect."

The Charlie Egerton-owned and trained Dr Livingstone (5-4 favourite) followed up a win at Kempton on Friday in the Lingfield Park Owners Group Jumpers' Bumper, beating Mickelson by two and a half lengths.
