IAN Incident Area Network SEMPLE moved off the 13 mark for the season when Jordans Elect battled home bravely up the Hamilton hill yesterday.
Apprentice Tom Eaves grabbed a prominent pitch and Jordans Elect showed too much resolution for favourite Takes Tutu.
Semple said: 'We fancied him a bit at Thirsk but that track rides too quick for him. This demanding uphill finish is much more his cup of tea and we'll be coming back here for the pounds 15,000 final of this qualifier in August.'
The gelding is owned by syndicate of local owners - Ian Crawford from Lanark, Ronnie McCurdy from New Stevenson and Brian Jordan from Wishaw.

Semple had high hopes of a double at his local course with Templet but he ran a stinker.
Jim Goldie's smashing servant Kid'z'play cut out much of the donkey work but Jamie Mackay, son of Grangemouth jockey Allan, pounced on Michael Bell's Magic Sting.
The Scottish action moves on to picturesque Perth on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.
