James Reveley was the star of the show at Doncaster as the Saltburn-based jockey booted home a 5,099-1 treble.

The highlight of the rider’s memorable Town Moor hat-trick came aboard 9-1 shot Robbie, who put in an excellent round of jumping on his way to winning the Betdaq No Premium Charge Handicap Chase.

The 10-year-old, trained by the jockey’s father, Keith, galloped and jumped his rivals into submission and saw off the challenge of Violets Boy close home to score by two-and-three-quarter lengths.

The winning trainer said: “He’s a grand old horse and loves it at Doncaster. He jumped magnificently today and I’m really proud of him – he’s done very well. If the handicapper doesn’t go too mad we’ll come back for a race here at the two-day meeting before Christmas.

“James has had another great day and I’m just pleased to have him.”

It was a case of master versus apprentice in the Betdaq 50 per cent Commission Refund Juvenile Hurdle as Dan Skelton-trained favourite Boss Des Mottes was opposed by Annalulu, trained by Skelton’s former employer, Paul Nicholls. However, neither were able to lay a glove on Two B’s, who struck at 50-1.

Tim Easterby’s three-year-old stepped up markedly on his introductory effort over hurdles at Wetherby last month and was game under Reveley to beat Witch From Rome by a length-and-three-quarters.

Habton handler Easterby said: “I always expect them to improve for their first start over hurdles.”

Reveley completed the hat-trick aboard Boruma (9-1) in the Cash Out On The Betdaq App Handicap Hurdle.

The Dianne Sayer inmate foiled a gamble on the Philip Hobbs-trained Cloud Creeper, extending clear of the well-supported favourite by six lengths.

Skelton trained his first winner at Doncaster courtesy of Guiding George (even-money favourite) in the Betdaq Betting Exchange £30 Free Bet Handicap Chase.
