A further 16 hounds have moved onto the three figure mark in a little over the last week, including Doncaster’s Mustang Bailey who is now on a century-and-a-half.

The omens don’t look good for Sue Watson’s runner who was beaten a distance last time after checking.

He has been a great servant for kennel and track having qualified more than four years ago and is only three months short of his sixth birthday.
