Vino follows up in styleHeadlines
Vino Griego heads for victory at Ascot

Vino Griego continued his rebirth as a serious racehorse by collecting his second victory in a row in the Weatherbys Hamilton Insurance Chase at Ascot.

While Gary Moore's gelding had shown such promise in bumpers, it was not until his 18th attempt over fences that he finally won at Cheltenham last month.

Moore's son Jamie produced the 11-4 favourite with immaculate timing and drove him two and a half lengths clear of the Grand National prospect Cappa Bleu.

Moore snr, who went on to a big across-the-card double when Well Refreshed won at Haydock, said: "We're not training him differently, we're maybe riding him a bit differently, but his whole attitude has changed. He's looking like the horse we always thought he could be.

"We'll look at the novice handicap chase at Cheltenham (Pulteney Land Investments), if he qualifies."

The runner-up Cappa Bleu, as well as third-placed Saint Are and The Rainbow Hunter (fourth) are all being prepared for the John Smith's Grand National.

Cappa Bleu's trainer Evan Williams said there was only "one day" for his horse, while Tim Vaughan and Kim Bailey were satisfied with efforts from their respective horses on ground which was unsuitably soft for them.
