WEXFORD-based painter Ollie Ellwood has just completed a trio of paintings commissioned by Ralph Beckett, who trains out of Toby Balding’s old yard at Kimpton in Wiltshire. They are of his three English classic winners to date. All three are oil on canvas.

One portrait is of Simple Verse ridden by Andea Atzeni who won the St Leger at Doncaster in 2015.
