Welshman Bradley Gibbs, now living in Hertfordshire, enjoyed a memorable afternoon at Chaddesley Corbett on Saturday, when Premier Magic, unbeaten in 3 runs this season, snaffled the most prestigious of the "classic" Point-to-Point races in the Lady Dudley Cup.
On the back of a Mixed Open victory on the same course at the Wheatland fixture in early December, followed by a 3/4l victory in the Dick Saunders Novices Hunters Chase at Leicester in February, Premier Magic and trainer-rider Gibbs were sent off a justifiable favourite, and picking off Igor for the Waley-Cohens at the turn out of the back straight, Gibbs had plenty in hand to assert as the race developed, winning by 12l.
On ground improved by watering from the indefatigable Clerk of Course Jim Squires, the excellent entry for this and the other 7 races bore fruit with a good turnout.
The Gibbs fortunes weren't yet finished for the day however, as he also picked up the Maiden Conditions race with Post No Bills, a 14l winner from Rose Iland.
