Melody calls right tune

Willie Mullins' first ever runner at Warwick, Glens Melody, won the Levy Board Warwick Mares' Hurdle on Saturday.

The listed race was a bonus for the track having being rescheduled from last week's lost meeting at Sandown, and it went the way of the well-backed 7/4 favourite.

Held up just off the pace and out wide by David Casey, the six-year-old went to the lead jumping the second last when the long-time prominent Flementime made an error that ended her challenge.

Oliver Sherwood's Mischievous Milly (4/1) emerged as the main threat and Glens Melody edged right jumping the last causing mild interference to the runner-up.

The winning distance was three quarters of a length in the end, with Harry Fry's Hidden Identity just a neck further away in third.
