Patience pays off for James King at Worcester
The final race of the evening at Worcester was the 7bets4free.com amateur riders Handicap Hurdle with 11 going to post and it was another West Country based amateur rider who was to prove his worth with a tenaciously ridden race.
Happy to bide his time on WHO AM I for Debra Hamer, James King tracked leading pair James Nixon on SPORTING MILAN and Page Fuller on I’LLHAVEALOOK as the trio drew away from the rest of the field. The partnership then went clear to lead on the flat and stayed on well to win by just under 2 lengths, with James Nixon 2nd and Page Fuller 3rd.
One of 9 individual gentleman jockeys to have ridden a winner each this season, this 2nd win of the season for James now puts him in pole position for the men’s jump championship at this very early stage. Well done and many congratulations to James and winning connections.
