Pembrokeshire jockey Lorcan Williams enjoyed the biggest day of his career on Friday with a first treble, highlighted by the victory of Romain De Senam in the feature 2m5½f handicap chase.

The first of his three winners at Fontwell came with Captain Cattistock in the 3m2f novice chase, a race Williams won in 2017 to give him a first winner for boss Paul Nicholls.

He followed that with victory on Danse Idol before striking on Romain De Senam, who battled on to beat Not Another Muddle by a length.

The rider, whose three winners were all trained by Nicholls, said: "It's great. I'd say this is probably my biggest day in my career. It's massive and hopefully it keeps going."

Harry Derham, assistant trainer to Nicholls, said: "It's been a great day. We knew we had some really nice chances but it's rare when it all comes off. 

"It's two years since Lorcan had his first winner for us on this card. Paul was very pleased to give him an opportunity to ride a few nice horses today and he proved he's well capable. I'm really happy for him, he works really hard and deserves a day like this."
