Alex Edwards and Brodie Hampson double at Hereford
It was good to see racing resumed at Hereford on Wednesday, the first of their two meetings this season having been transferred to Worcester because of firm ground.
Gary Hanmer sent out High Counsel for the Level Peaks Associates Handicap Chase ridden by Alex Edwards. Despite taking a keen hold early on and overcoming a mistake two out as well as hanging to the left as they approached the last, Alex drove his horse out to win by half a length. Congratulations to connections and well done Alex!
The biggest field of the day saw 15 to go to post for The Brecon Carreg ROA/Racing Post Owners Jackpot Handicap Hurdle. Many congratulations to Brodie Hampson on a great ride for John O’Shea on Cougar Kid. Holding her horse up, Brodie began to make a move three from home, smoothly taking the lead after 2 out and pushed clear on the flat to win by 7 lengths from Noel Fehily on Schnabel.
Many congratulations to winning connections.
What a great day for amateur jockeys!
