LAURA Fenwick, 26, was the jockey to follow in yesterday's Lauderdale fixture at Mosshouses with the first winners of her career on stable companions, The Ketchup Kid and Clonea Power, trained by her mother, Sarah.

The old adage of backing the outsider of three paid dividends as Fenwick initiated her double on The Ketchup Kid in the NPPA Club Members Race. Her mount dictated the pace from the outset and kept the favourite, Great Gusto and The Ice Factor at bay on the final circuit before sealing a two lengths victory with another great jump at the last.

Fenwick, who is based at Angerton Steads near Morpeth, said: "It's great to finally ride a winner after so many near misses this season. I didn't really expect that today as I'd only completed on him once in four starts, although his only other win in his last yard was also on quick ground at Brocklesby Park three years ago. He's been working well at home since finishing third to For A Finish on his seasonal debut at Tranwell four weeks ago and maintained a relentless gallop for me all the way to the line." Fenwick's red letter day was completed on Clonea Power in the Ladies Open Race. The ten-year-old was always in the leading pair and never looked like being caught after quickening ten lengths clear with a circuit to go. Whiteabbey briefly looked a threat when three lengths down two out but was unable to bridge the gap.

Molten Brown made it three wins from four starts between the flags this term in the Border Hunts Club Members Race. …
