A change of fortunes saw PPORA Rider Rep Darren Edwards ride a double at Wadebridge taking him to a career tally of 250 wins – 223 between the flags and 27 under Rules
Unshipped and injured on the way to the start at Barbury in November, Darren was back in the game just a month later but left the Harkaway Club meeting at Chaddesley Corbett with just a pair of additional letters on the score sheet.
Starting the day on 248 career wins, it was the Dean Summersby trained Robin De Souza who added winner number one in the opening Members Race.
Spectator predictions that Chosen Lucky would be winner 250 proved misplaced in the Men’s and it was left to the The Two Amigos to deliver the goods in the Confined. He duly did crossing the line 15 lengths clear of Navanman (Rex Dingle) his only rival to remain standing in the race.
