A VICTORY finally came the way of Henrietta Knight's stable yesterday after Wishing William defied top weight to take the Ilminster Handicap Chase at Taunton stylishly by 21 lengths.

"We've had 10 seconds since our last winner, so it's nice to get another winner on the board," the Wantage trainer said later. "This horse liked the good ground here much better than he did the soft last time."

At Ludlow, Native Recruit indicated that David Nicholson's string is hitting form. Adrian Maguire sent the well-backed favourite clear of the promising Lady Prunella to score by 18 lengths.
