DANNY COOK ACCEPTS FEGENTRI OFFER AND RIDES A WINNER!
Commiserations to Tom Weston who had a crunching fall at the Berkeley on Saturday which knocked him out for 4 minutes and resulted in a broken collar bone. (By coincidence, this was the same horse that knocked Claire Allen out for 5 minutes at Bangor a few weeks ago!)
This injury is sickening for Tom as not only will it rule him out of riding Caught at Dawn at Cheltenham’s Hunterchase evening meeting next week but it also rules out his plans to be Great Britain’s Fegentri representative this year.
Danny Cook has stepped into the breach and is looking forward to trips to Spain (Madrid), France (Auteuil) and Germany (Mannheim) in the next few weeks.
Danny has celebrated by winning in fine style at Wincanton this afternoon, producing his horse with a well timed run to pass AP McCoy on the run-in for his guv’nor David Pipe.
