The success story that is Foster'sisland added another chapter when he completed his hat-track under Emma Smith-Chaston, who was also winning on him for the third time in a row, at Ayr on Tuesday afternoon. Foster'sisland has now won five of his 12 hurdles starts which began when winning at Carlisle back in February from a mark of 89. His latest win has come from a mark of 118, and if his jumping had been just a little more slicker at the last he would have been the clear winner. I would imagine that the handicapper will raise him around a further 4lb for this, but while he is in this mood, and Emma is on top, he could well complete the four timer.
