IT was another rewarding Saturday for Colin Tizzard as Robinsfirth stayed on with great determination to land Haydock’s William Hill Grand National Trial, thereby adding to stable-companion Mister Malarky’s gains at Ascot.

The Grade 3 race saw Bishops Road set up a clear lead with Ramses De Teillee clearly travelling well in the chasing group. Chef D’Oeuvre was also right there but, when Bishops Road finally cried enough it was Ramses De Teillee who went on. He looked a near certainty two out but Robinsfirth,
having found little at first, started to run on for Sean Bowen.
