THE Greenall brothers, trainer Oliver and jockey Jake, took the honours at Hereford on Sunday as they won the opening and closing races of the racecourse's final meeting of the season.

Gris De Pron was relatively unfancied in the betting for the two mile Maiden Hurdle race, but the ex-French hurdler who had disappointed on his debut for the stable in January had some fair form in his native land and was always travelling well for Jake Greenall.

Greenall produced his mount to challenge approaching the final hurdle and only had to drive his mount out to win a shade cosily by a length and a quarter from runner-up Fixed Rate with the 9/4 favourite Moon Arrow a well beaten fifth.

“He was came over from France with quite a bit of expectation and we fancied him on his debut but just stopped dead," said Oliver Greenhill.

"He jumps well and we’ll go chasing with him in time."

The family double was completed in the concluding race on the card the two mile three furlong Handicap hurdle when Badbad Leroy Brown put his best foot forward with a determined staying performance and a hard fought two length win over his seven rivals.

Worcestershire owner Tommy Black has his own place in Hereford racecourse history as he owned Seymour Eric, the final winner before the 2012 temporary closure.

And he was back in the winners' enclosure after the two mile five-and-a-half furlong novice hurdle when his Seymour Star had triumphed.

A half-brother to Seymour Eric, Seymour Star rallied well from the final hurdle when seemingly held by Coole Cody seemed to have the race at his mercy and under a determined ride from Andrew Tinkler they swept past to score by two and a quarter lengths.

The racecourse was well supported in its final meeting of the season with 2,487 attending.

Point to point racing returns to the track with two scheduled meetings on April 22 with the North Ledbury Hunt fixture and the North Herefordshire Hunt on May 21.
