Racing: Twiston-Davies ends his long losing run

Click to follow

Nigel Twiston-Davies came out of the wilderness with a double here yesterday. Persistent rain made conditions extremely testing throughout the afternoon and several horses were struggling to see out their races up the hill.

But Twiston-Davies wasn't complaining as he saddled his first winners for six weeks when Brambly Hedge and Cresswell Cherry stayed on best in the prevailing conditions. The trainer was pleased to be back in the winner's enclosure but was not getting carried away.

"Everybody seems to forget that at this time of the year it's very hard to win races," he said. "I haven't got a great bunch of horses and I haven't got any owners who can afford to spend fortunes. It's not rocket science.

"The horses haven't been running badly. Mister Morose ran well at Cheltenham on Saturday and Bindaree has run well. It's just nice to have a winner or two."
