Neither of Mark Wallis’ two entrants were able to claim the £17,500 Ladbrokes Golden Jacket title at Crayford this evening.
Rubys Razzle and Ferryforth Fran were drawn in boxes one and six respectively for the Lakenheath handler, who won the race 12 months ago thanks to Patchys Kerry.
This time around, Rubys Razzle set the pace, but was eventually reeled in by joint favourite and winner Boylesports Star.
Ferryforth Fran, meanwhile, was also in contention early on, only to find the eight-bend pace too much and had to settle for fourth place.
However, the overall meeting was still a positive one for Wallis as Swift Dante, Rubys Rascal, Roswell Roxanne and Ribble Aon all recorded victories on the same card.
