ALEX DUNN ENJOYS JOCKEY/TRAINER DOUBLE AT TAUNTON
Riding against professionals, Alex had to adopt very different racing tactics to enjoy both successes. Her first win was the result of a battle to the line with runner-up Chesil Beach Boy and she had to work hard in a driving finish to force Helium’s head in front. By contrast, waiting tactics and immense patience allowed Come On Annie to pass her rivals including long time leader Midnight Request.
Alex said “We’ve now had 9 winners in the last year and things are going really well as all 16 boxes at the yard are full. Newmarket trainer Michael Bell is my cousin and I’m desperate to beat one of his in a Flat race one day, although we might struggle to have one good enough for that at the moment.”
