    TRAINER-JOCKEY duo Dean Summersby and Darren Edwards enjoyed a hat-trick of wins with three promising horses. Their first win came in the conditions (level three) with six-year-old gelding Port O’Clock. The gelding has now won his past three starts.

    “We bought him as a store in Ireland three years ago,” said Dean. “He’s a lovely horse with loads of ability but hasn’t been the easiest. He’s a bit hot-headed and you can’t touch his mouth, but each year he is maturing and Darren has done a grand job on him. He’ll have one more run in an intermediate this season and maybe go hunter chasing.”
