It was another good day for the stable yesterday with the facile success of Ainsi Fideles (pictured above) in the 2m4 1/2f handicap chase at Perth.  He jumped very well in the main, with the exception of an error at the tricky ditch and he scored fairly much as he pleased in the hands of Tom Scudamore on this handicap debut.  This was certainly a good piece of placement by David to find a three runner race and preserve his unbeaten record over fences - I expect he will be looking for further opportunities for him over the coming weeks.  His success made it two wins from two runners at the meeting and with Ainsi Fideles adding £7,596 to the £9495 won by His Excellency the day before, it was certainly a worthwhile trip.
