Henrietta Knight retained her crown as the Queen of Exeter when saddling a double at the course yesterday afternoon following victories for Colonel Blazer and Thunder Road. Only Martin Pipe has trained more winners at the Haldon Hill circuit in recent years.

Colonel Blazer and Jason Titley appeared to have a simple task in the Royal Navy 'National Hunt' Novices' Hurdle and so it proved as stablemate Blowing Rock was the only rival to pose a threat.

The five-year-old proved a flop on his last outing at Ayr and Miss Knight explained: "He ran badly there but Jason said he lost a shoe and his action at the same time."
