Daryl Jacob struck with his only ride of the day

The top-weight, sent off 13/8 favourite and a first course success for Dr Richard Newland, slammed Wings Of Smoke by five-lengths in the Racing UK HD Handicap Chase.

Jacob, now boasting a 60 per cent strike-rate from his five rides in the past five years at the East Lothian venue, said: "He didn't stay 3m 1f at Cheltenham and this was an easier race as well.

"I'd say he'd get three miles on a flat track and he's won pretty well out there today."
