Sweden: Dunsdon drives Keys to National victory.

TOP amateur rider David Dunsdon enjoyed a remarkable victory on Silent Keys in the pounds 18,000 Swedish Grand National at Stromsholm yesterday.

The champion point-to-point rider, who is based with Josh Gifford at Findon, was drafted in at the last minute by trainer Tony Oscarsson and rewarded him with a superb ride on the nine-year-old to beat Trinitro, whose rider, Rupert Wakley, had earlier been unplaced aboard Charles Spencelayh in the Swedish Champion Hurdle.

Dunsdon also finished second on Get Rhythm in the Bob Champion Fegentri International for amateur riders.
