It was doubles all round at Devonport on Mother’s Day with Ismail Toker, Daniel Ganderton and apprentice Chris Graham each kicking home a pair of victors.
Toker was first on the board, taking the day’s opener, an open-age maiden plate over 1150 metres, with the John Blacker-trained Silver Road.
It was a big effort by the juvenile son of Foxwedge, who was trapped three wide on pace but just kept finding to score at his second appearance.
The Turkish expat completed his double aboard the Glenn Stevenson-trained Killin Falls, who scored a very impressive win first up from a break in the Class 2 handicap over 1150 metres, charging home from midfield.
Three-kilo claimer Graham opened his account on the Barry Campbell-trained It’s a Battle, who fought back after being clearly headed to take the maiden/Class 1 plate over 1650 metres.
The win completed a double for Campbell, who had earlier produced juvenile Jubilance to take the open-age maiden plate over 1350 metres under apprentice Nathan Punch after settling at the tail of the field.
Graham completed his double aboard the Adam Trinder-trained Steel Moon, who remained unbeaten after two runs this prep when scoring a strong on-pace win in the benchmark 72 handicap over 1150 metres.
Ganderton produced an excellent ride to take the benchmark 72 handicap over 1350 metres on the Mark Ganderton-trained Lord Farquaad, settling midfield then saving valuable ground on the home turn before going on to score a comfortable victory.
The former top apprentice completed his double aboard the Team Wells-trained Don Reggio, who enjoyed a perfect trail just off the pace before taking the benchmark 62 handicap over 1880 metres.
