Swiss celebrates 100 not out
Swiss Cross made his 100th run even more memorable as he notched his 10th career victory in the Betway Handicap at Lingfield.

The nine-year-old began life with Gerard Butler but transferred to the care of Phil McEntee in 2012 and has since won six races for the Newmarket team.
A winner at Lingfield in October, Swiss Cross made light work of beating Rigolletto by two and a half lengths and could try to claim an 11th success back at the Surrey track on Saturday.
McEntee said: "It's brilliant and I'm delighted for Steve Jakes, Swiss Cross' owner.
"We've been running him at Chelmsford as it's on our doorstep but it hasn't really suited him, then he's come back to Lingfield and found another leg.
"He's entered again at Lingfield on Saturday in a 51-65 race and that was the plan."
He went on: "It's fantastic the horse has won his 10th race on his 100th start. It's a great achievement.
"We have Jonnie Skull, who has run 200 times in the yard, and Putin who has run over 100 times – these old geldings don't do much in between, they're just turned out and have a swim.
"It's brilliant to have horses like that in the yard and this win means a lot to us."
