TIM EASTERBY’S Fourjacks made a winning start to his career over fences in the Star Sports Cheltenham Preview Night – 4th March Novices’ Chase at Wetherby Racecourse.

The Great Habton-trained runner, victorious at Sedgefield over hurdles on his previous start, beat 11-8 favourite Poole Master by a length at odds of 3-1.

Easterby’s course specialist Lease Lend was denied a fourth Wetherby win by Dunowen Point in the feature race, the Ladies Evening – 30th May Handicap Chase.

The Wetherby card also featured a 100-1 winner in Prize Fighter, who finished two and a quarter lengths clear of 25-1 shot Highland Love in the Wetherby Racecourse & Conference Centre Handicap Hurdle.

Jockey Jason Maguire rode three winners at the meeting, on board Up And Go (13-8 fav) in the opener, Dunowen Point (5-2) in the feature and then Ifits A Fiddle (9-4 fav) in the closing race.
