After Hours came with a late rally
to collar Baratineur in the Down-
load Your Racing UK App Handicap
Hurdle at Haydock.
Favourite backers looked set to
collect in the opener at the Mersey-
side venue when when Dan Skelton s
Baratineur came with a smooth run
to lead two out.
The 11-4 shot went a few lengths
clear but After Hours (6-1), who had
always been prominent, found more
for James Davies and the Henry Oliv-
er-trained six-year-old got up on
the line to snatch the verdict by a
The first two drew 12 lengths
ahead of Captain Redbeard back in
"I wasn t sure if he d got there,
but our fella is an old-hand com-
pared to the other horse and he stuck
on really well," said Oliver.
"I was looking for a novice hand-
icap chase for him but there wasn t
one except at a Grade One track and
I didn t want to go there first time,
so we ve ended up coming here.
"I did want to go novice chasing
with him but I might leave him over
hurdles now for the time being.
"I ll be in no rush to run him
quickly as this ground takes lot more
out of them. He s done the job any-
The Skelton brothers, jockey Harry
and trainer Dan, the team behind
Baratineur, went one better with
Pain Au Chocolat (15-8) in the Racing
UK Anywhere Novices Chase.
The four-year-old stepped up on
his fencing debut at Market Rasen
two months ago to floor 8-13
favourite Aso by a length and a quar-
ter despite a couple of sketchy jumps
"He was quite a good horse over
hurdles last season for Alan King,"
said the jockey, who took a helicopter
to Ascot to partner Zarib in The Lad-
broke after riding in the first three
races at Haydock.
"We ve just been taking our time
with him. He could probably do with
a bit more cut in the ground than
he had at Market Rasen.
"We think he s a nice horse and
there s plenty of improvement from
Smart Talk (3-1 favourite) galloped
the opposition into submission as
she swept to an all-the-way win in
the Listed Watch Racing UK on
Three Devices Mares Novices Hur-
dle.Paddy Brennan took no prisoners
from the outset as he got Brian Elli-
son s into a good rhythm.
Sunshine Corner was the only
rival who got anywhere near to
mounting a challenge but that was
to no avail as Smart Talk came home
eight lengths clear.
"Jumping s her forte," said Elli-
"She goes a good lick and enjoys
it. We ve schooled her over fences
and she s brilliant. I had a look at
Ascot on Friday but we changed our
minds and came here instead.
"She s ready to go chasing but this
was a nice prize to win."
Arthur s Oak (11-4 favourite) never
saw another rival as Venetia
Williams seven-year-old made all
in tremendous style to land the DH
Welton 40th Anniversary Handicap
Liam Treadwell barely had an anx-
ious moment as Arthur s Oak over-
came a 257-day absence in romping
to victory by 17 lengths from Back
"He just found a lovely rhythm
and jumped super," said Treadwell.
"He s physically very strong and
we thought he might find this two
miles a bit sharp, but he was in a
high gear from an early stage and
put them to the sword."
Josh Moore got the Jonjo O Neill-
trained Montdragon (9-2) on top
near the finish to take the nation-
Hurdle by two and a quarter lengths
from Baby Bach.
"He got a bit unbalanced coming
round the bend but did it nicely in
the end," said Moore.
Isaacstown Lad (5-2 favourite) rel-
ished the testing conditions, getting
on top on the run-in under Brian
Harding to beat Oscar Blue by four
lengths in the Bet With Your Racing
UK App Handicap Hurdle.
Trainer Nicky Richards said: "He
loves that ground. That s four he s
won for me.
"The only three miles handicaps
in the winter are the Pertemps qual-
ifiers, so I suppose he ll have to go
for one of them."
After times it right at Haydock
