The AJA Restricted Open Race at the Ledbury point-to-point on Sunday 3rd April at Maisemore Park in Gloucestershire saw Julian Pritchard equal David Turner’s all time record of point-to-point winners when he scored on The Brooklet to raptuous applause from the local crowd. Appropriately, this was the course where Julian had his first ride over 20 years ago.
Julian then went on to break the all time record in the following race by scoring on Royal Jake.
With the whole world anticipating an exciting Grand National with its full quota of 40 runners, lets hope for some luck in running for both David Dunsdon and Thomas Greenall and their respective mounts.
David Dunsdon and Joly Bey were very unlucky to be badly baulked at Cheltenham recently which caused the tack to slip so badly that David had no alternative other than to pull up. Hopefully this time there will be no such incident. Good luck to the Findon team and to David and Joley Bey and good luck also to Thomas Greenall, who holds a commanding lead in our NH jockeys’ table this season.
