Tiddliwinks triumphs

AMY Ryan displayed nerves of steel aboard her father Kevin's Tiddliwinks in the 2for1dogs.com – Go Greyhound Racing For £1 Pound Handicap at Kempton.

The 2008 champion lady Flat amateur rider is set to take a well-earned break after totting up 21 wins in the previous 12 months and ensured she finished on a high courtesy of the 10-11 favourite. The improving four-year-old bolted up at the track over six furlongs the previous Saturday and again easily obliged under a 6lb penalty thanks to Ryan's waiting tactics.

She anchored the heavily-backed market leader behind a wall of horses and drove her mount up to take advantage of the running rail dropping away for the inner home turn to earn a two-length success.

Meanwhile, Leicester's National Hunt meeting on Tuesday is the latest to fall victim to the cold snap.

The abandonment means there will be no National Hunt card until Wednesday at the earliest.
