Imjoeking was an impressive winner of the feature race in front of a large crowd on Perth's Family Fun day card.
Ridden by Craig Nichol, Lucinda Russell's top-weight led at the fourth last on his way to an eight-length victory over Roc De Prince in the Action Glen Novices' Handicap Chase (For The Crieff Cup).
Miss Russell said: "He's had a wind operation and it's helped him enormously. He also impressed at Hexham last
time and that form is starting to look really good as the second won earlier on to day. He's a seriously good horse
and he stayed on really well. Galway might come a bit too soon and we may look after him until the winter."
Anthony Fox, 24, rode his first-ever winner when landing the opener on Stuart Crawford's Dr Moloney.
"I've had plenty of chances since joining Stuart in March so it's fantastic to ride a winner for him," said Fox is hails from
"I've been knocking on the door with about 60 rides under Rules and around 100 in point to points so I'm glad to get one."
Badger McAllister gained his first winner since returning from a serious knee injury when Maurice Barnes-trained Harry's Whim made all in the Free £25 World Cup Bet At totepool.com Handicap Chase.
The Irishman said: "This was my 16th ride back and I returned about a month ago. It was knee ligament damage and required surgery to set it right. I was on a young horse at home and I sort of twisted it in mid-air. It's great to be back and, even better, to ride a winner."
