Adrian Maguire and Richard Dunwoody continued their terrific duel for the jump jockeys' championship by riding two winners apiece at Newton Abbot yesterday.

Maguire, on his first day back following an eight-day ban, took the opening race on 7-4 favourite Muhtashim and an hour later followed up on 100-30 shot Billygoat Gruff to give David Nicholson his second winner of the season.

But reigning champion Richard Dunwoody more than matched that, riding a 44-1 double for trainer Paul Nicholls on Kelling and Vicompt de Valmont. The latter may now be aimed at the Welsh National.
