As Easy As continued his strong form on the picnics circuit by claiming the Ardlethan Picnic Cup (1600m) on Saturday.

The Sarah Mcilrick trained mare made it three wins in six starts by taking out the feature event.

It backs up earlier success at Condobolin and Trangie for the Parkes trainer.

Ridden to victory by Samara Johnson, As Easy As went on to defeat Scott Spackman’s Tyson’s Tiger by almost three lengths.

While he missed out on taking home the cup with Mr Sommerville, Wagga trainer Trevor Sutherland had another successful day.

He claimed three of the six races with My Friend Albert, Lightning Alert and Spare Parts all saluting. Ricky Blewitt rode a double.
