BASKERVILLE went two for two by winning his second start a Nottingham today in a competitive mile handicap.

Making all the running, running up a long straight into a strong headwind and battling to fight off a challenge from the favourite, the Hintlesham Racing colt justified trainer Peter Chapple-Hyam’s alteration of target to a mile and gave Eddie Ahearn the last leg of a treble at the meeting, getting home by a neck.

Seemingly able to go farther, BASKERVILLE put in a performance at a mile sufficient to see him touted for the Britannia Handicap at Royal Ascot, but all options are open.
