IT WAS a day that 20-year-old Ed Doggrell will not forget in his riding career as he recorded his first ever treble as a jockey at the Portman meet at Badbury Rings.

Other highlights included a riding double for Martin McIntyre and a training double for Sally Alner and an impressive debut of One Touch in the young Maiden race.

Blackwater Bramble bounced back to form when making virtually all the running to win the Intermediate race, the first race on the card.

He did not enjoy the softer ground at Charlton Horethorne when pulling up in his Members race but this was more like the form he had shown when winning his Restricted at Milborne St Andrew.

Given a very positive ride by Martin McIntyre he had four lengths in hand from Fortune Bound ridden by Bradley Gibbs who secured his place in the Intermediate Final at Cheltenham.

Francesca Nimmo, paying her first ever visit to Badbury as a trainer , introduced a smart prospect in the shape of One Touch who won the two-mile five-furlongs Maiden race under James King.

After Apple Mack had fallen at the third last, the four-year-old Court Cave gelding held off the challenge of Enormouse, ridden by Josh Newman.

Doggrell secured the first of his three victories aboard the Mike Felton-trained Bistouri D’Honore in the Novice Riders' race.

Deputising for the sidelined Harriet Tucker, Doggrell held up his mount until approaching the second last and soon pulled six lengths clear of the runner-up De Boitron, ridden by Kiana James-Thomas.

Winner number two for 2018 for Doggrell followed in the very next race when making virtually all of the running in the Mixed Open race aboard Tom Barton, trained by Alner. With usual rider Lorcan Williams riding at Exeter, Doggrell proved to be an admirable replacement and Tom Barton responded with some great leaps and after being headed by Moscow Prices at the third last he rallied well under Doggrell's urgings to lead again on the run-in and secure a length and a half victory.

One of the most impressive performances of the day came from Emperor Renard winning the Restricted race under Matt Hampton.

Taking it up from stablemate Tackler at the 14th fence he maintained a strong gallop all the way to the line and gave trainer Marie McGuinness a one-two in the race.

The first division of the Maiden race gave McIntyre the second of his victories when partnering all the way winner Cona River for Ed and Claire Hitch.

The second division of the Maiden gave champion jockey Will Biddick a welcome winner aboard Julian Selby’s mare Who Told You trained by Ed Walker.

The final race, the Confined, saw Doggrell bring up his treble aboard the mare Flights, trained by Alner.
