The yard got off the mark for the new season when Alys Rock won over fences at Worcester under Partick Cowley. Always in the front rank she jumped into the lead 6 from home and never looked like being caught, staying on well up the run in.
ALYS ROCK, previously trained by Mick Appleby and off the track for over a year, gave Laura Morgan her first winner of the season. Moving to the front at the last down the far side, she was being hard pressed by the runner-up when he collided with the rails on the run-in. Now 2-3 over fences, she showed a slight inclination to jump to her right, but drifted the other way after the last.
