RYEDALE trainer Paul Midgley landed one of horse racing's newest prizes when Tylery Wonder won the 'Jump Jockeys' Nunthorpe' at York.

The victory formed part of a memorable weekend 'hat-trick' for Midgley as Line of Reason also won the Gosforth Park Cup at Newcastle and Art Obsession upset the odds in a six furlong handicap at Doncaster.

It took Midgley's tally of winners for the season to 12 and his total winnings this season to £263,449 which ranks him 32nd in the Flat Trainers Championship.

"It was a great weekend," said Midgley. "Winning the Gosforth Park Cup is definitely one off the bucket list because that's a race with loads of history. And it is nice to win any sort of 'Nunthorpe' so I will settle for victory in the Jump Jockeys' version all day long.

"Art Obsession's victory (at odds of 11-1) was great for all the boys involved," he added. "But it was not that big a shock to me because I knew he loved Doncaster and he loved slow ground."

Tylery Wonder was ridden to victory by one of jump racing's leading jockeys Tom Scudamore.

Bursting out of the stalls, he led for the majority of the five furlong sprint, finishing a full four lengths clear of a field that featured rival jump jockeys including Paddy Brennan, Nico de Boinville, and Aidan Coleman.

Line of Reason, ridden by Oisin Murphy, won at Newcastle by half a length from Kevin Ryan's Lexington Abbey.

Only two weeks earlier, the seven year old had returned to the winner's enclosure at Musselburgh after a disappointing 12 months which included five winter races in Dubai. He will be back in action at Sandown on Saturday seeking to complete a hat-trick in the Coral Charge.

"It is excellent to have Line of Reason back to something like he used to be," said Midgley. "He is a good horse who lost his way a little but now he is well-handicapped. He will be going again on Saturday at Sandown and hopefully we can strike again while the iron is hot! Touch wood, my horses seem in good order at the moment and they are pushing for the money again."

Malton trainer Brian Ellison suffered disappointment in the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle on Saturday when Seamour, one of the pre-race favourites, only finished 12th.

But there was success for Malton's Tim Easterby at York when jockey Rachel Richardson steered Just Hiss to victory in The Like Sun Bets on Facebook Stakes handicap over a mile.

Richardson had taken the reins for three of his last five appearances and had won previously with the bay gelding at Musselburgh in September before finishing eighth in a handicap over a mile and two furlongs at York in June.

"He had a good race at the last meeting at York," said Easterby. "But I said to Rachel, 'ride him how you want to ride him!' She's ridden him before, she has won on him before, so I will just leave it to you. He's a lovely horse who likes a bit of juice in the ground. I thought we had a good chance. The softer, the better, and it had just dried out enough."

Shelley Birkett rode Jacbequick, trained by Upper Helmsley's David O'Meara, to victory in the final race of Saturday's meeting at York, the Lady Riders Stakes over a mile and three furlongs.
