Djakavi Catterick-2

Djarkevi wins on yard debut

Djarkevi proved to be a very shrewd buy for Laura Morgan and Owner Elaine Holmes when picked up at Goffs October Sales for a fraction of the £68,000 that Charlie Longsdon paid for the gelding barely 18 months earlier.

Making his debut for the yard at Catterick he jumped for fun and fairly bolted up under Ross Chapman….lets hope the handicapper is not too harsh on him !

DJARKEVI, making his debut for this trainer, jumped particularly well and, having set a good gallop, saw his race out in style. He proved far too good for his rivals but the downside is that he could face a stiff rise for beating some out-of-form rivals.

Skipping On Hurdles-1

Boxing Day win For Skipping On

Three time winning chaser , Skipping On, reverted to Hurdles for his first run in the colours of The Triumph In Mind partnership and recorded an emphatic win at very rewarding odds of 16-1.

He was given a polished ride by 7lb claiming amateur Tabitha Worsley and stayed on really well up the Sedgefield hill.

SKIPPING ON, absent since an 11l winner over fences in April, produced a fine effort after his absence under a positive ride. He found plenty when asked for extra late on and won comfortably.

TT Still 3

Chase win for Thomas Todd







After a steady start to the season, due to the firm ground and lack of rain in the autumn, the horses are really running into form.

Hasaab was a close second yesterday at Leicester and Thomas Todd went one better today with an emphatic win at Mussleburgh.

THOMAS TODD, a point winner since last seen over hurdles, was held up and looked in trouble before picking up strongly on the straight. He should be able to go on from this.
