Third second for Elliott

Irish trainer Gordon Elliott endured his third successive second in Perth when Nedzer's Return was just touched off by Bucephalus (13-2) in the Exclusive Lodges Novices' Hurdle.

Nedzer’s Return went on with more than a circuit of the Scottish track to go but he could not draw the sting out of the opposition.

Rose Street and Bucephalus were never far away and though the former could not keep up the challenge, Maurice Barnes’ runner would not go away.

There was nothing between the pair at the last and it was Bucephlaus, ridden by 3lb claimer Michael McAllister, who prevailed by a neck. Rose Street was 21 lengths away in third.
