Scottish victory for Marracudja

Sarah West

Marracudja, a dual winner for Ditcheat Thoroughbreds last season, returned to the winners enclosure this afternoon at Musselburgh with a game success in the bet365 Scottish Champion Chase.

Sent off 15/8 favourite on ground which had become softer than anticipated with rain on the day, Marracudja’s one and a quarter length success over Baby King gave Bryony Frost her 40th career win (thus reducing her claim to 3lbs).

“His confidence was lacking to start with and he’s missed a lot of fences,” she said.

“He’s a tricky customer and a nervous type but I could feel him getting more confident over the last few fences. We were a bit worried with all the rain and I’m delighted it’s worked out for him.”
