BELSTANE Stables trainer Keith Dalgleish missed out on bringing the Lanark Silver Bell back to Clydesdale on Friday night.

Keith’s horse Wee Frankie was strongly back by punters to win the featured race at Hamilton Park.

However, the 3/1 favourite could only finish fifth in the race won by Mark Johnston’s Swivel, ridden superbly by Kevin Stott.

However, it didn’t take Keith long to get over the disappointment as in the final race of the evening, The Jordan Electrics Handicap, Dalgleish’s 8/1 shot Live Dangerously, ridden by Tom Eaves, romped home to win in style.

The Live Dangerously win saw Keith surpass 50 winners for the season.

He said: “I was happy with the way the meeting went. Anytime we get a winner I’m happy!

“Live Dangerously has had a lot of chances to win in the past and this time around he showed a lot more speed in the final stretch.

“He managed to get his nose in front and stay there. We will probably have him back out next week and see how he does.
