Matthew Griffiths makes it a double at Taunton
Matthew Griffiths enjoyed winning the opener at Taunton today, the amateur riders’ handicap hurdle, in fine style for Tony Newcombe on JOCHESKI, making smooth headway to take up the lead 3 from home and stay on well to win by 14 lengths. Ninety minutes later Matthew was revisiting the winner’s enclosure when he scored on FORTIFICATION for Ron Hodges in the 3 mile Handicap Chase. Riding against professionals, Ratification was left clear at the 12th to go on and complete unchallenged. Many congratulations to Matthew on a great day’s racing in which he also finished 2nd with his other ride of the day.
