Newbury review: 200/1 winner for jockey Cieren Fallon

A review of the rest of the action from Saturday afternoon's meeting at Newbury as there was a 200/1 winner for Cieren Fallon.

200/1 winner for Fallon at Newbury

The second division of the It's Not Rocket Science Wth MansionBet Novice Stakes at Newbury on Saturday went the way of John Gallagher's 200/1 chance Intercessor, ridden by Cieren Fallon.

Gallagher said: "He had a spin at Salisbury last year, he missed the break and jumped the road, but he was always doing his best work at the end, so we thought a mile would suit.

"We decided to come here with the long straight over going to Kempton as he has a lovely stride. His lad Philip Thomas has done a cracking job on him at home.

"I said to the owner, who did have a little bit on him each-way, if he finishes in the first five he will have run a good race, so he has run a really good race winning."

It's not rocket science for Lord

Lord Campari wins at Newbury

Lord Campari redeemed himself with trainer Roger Varian after running out a stylish winner in the first division of the It's Not Rocket Science With MansionBet Novice Stakes at Newbury.

Having stood on the Newmarket handler's foot during the preliminaries, the son of Kingman, who finished sixth on his debut at Sandown last year, more than made up for it on his seasonal comeback in the mile contest.

Travelling powerfully throughout, the 15/8 shot quickly put the race to bed when sent on, crossing the line four and three-quarter lengths clear of favourite Tsar.

Varian said: "He jumped on my foot when I was saddling him, so he has redeemed himself well. The win has made me feel better.

"We liked him last year but he is a big, raw horse. He travelled nicely and quickened well. It was a nice seasonal debut. We will see how he is in the morning then take it from there."

Morisco relishes extra distance

Morisco took a step up in trip in his stride to make a triumphant return to action in the It's Not Rocket Science With MansionBet Handicap.

The Tom Dascombe-trained three-year-old added to wins at Newcastle and Ayr last season, gained either side of finishing fifth in the Acomb, to make a winning start over a mile and a quarter.

Held up early on, the 100/30 shot swept to the front two furlongs out before finding plenty for pressure to hold off It's Good To Laugh by a length and a quarter.

Richard Kingscote, winning jockey, said: "We always liked this horse and we thought he would do well this year.

"He has obviously progressed and he went about that really nicely. I was really pleased with the way he picked up.

"Last year a couple of times he was a bit keen, but that was much better and he settled nicely and got into a good rhythm.

"The boss was confident he would get the trip and he was right."
