Kelly does the trick with Magique.

Byline: Wolverhampton Andrew King

PUNTERS who kept the faith with Magique, twice beaten at odds-on, were at last rewarded when she took the 1m1/2f juvenile maiden under a confident ride from Shane Kelly.

Jeremy Noseda's filly was returned 4-7 but this time won with plenty in hand after tracking the pace before cruising ahead inside the final furlong to beat Mosman.

Kelly said: "She's been too keen previously but things panned out for her this time as they went a good clip up front and I was able to sit in behind before making a move. Hopefully she will go on from here."

Signs good for Piscean After more than three months on the easy list, Tom Keddy's Piscean sprang a 20-1 shock in the 6f handicap, coming out on top in a three-way driving finish with Woolfall Sovereign and Sulis Minerva.

Keddy said: "It's not really a surprise he's won but he's been off since picking up a leg injury in the paddock at home and we've done well to get him back in winning form. His owner Andrew Duffield will be pleased but he's on holiday in Thailand."

Non-stop Express Tram Express came from last to first to land the 1m6f handicap. Trainer Shaun Lycett, who had "a little bet at a big price" on the 25-1 shot, said: "He got hammered by the handicapper after his second in a claimer over hurdles at Worcester 18 months ago and had not won since."

Faulty stall reported In the 1m1/2f handicap won by Outlaw Torn, the stewards inquired into the late opening of stall five occupied by the unplaced Shelovestobouggie. They found the stall opened fractionally late due to a faulty mechanism and forwarded a report to the BHA.
