Becky Smith enjoys repeat success with HERMANUS
The absence of Becky Smith aboard her recent Newbury winner LUV U WHATEVER at Musselburgh on 3rd August proved to be significant when she was booked elsewhere to ride another of her recent winners over hurdles in the form of Stef Keniry’s HERMANUS.
Always prominent, the partnership put on a brave performance to follow up their recent Cartmel win and hit the front of the 14 runner field four from home. A mistake three out saw them headed but under strong driving from Becky the mare rallied to lead a length up at the last and run on to win by just over two lengths from Brian Hughes with Richard Johnson third.
Many congratulations to Becky who is enjoying a fine season both on the flat and over jumps, with this win taking her into the lead for the jump ladies. Many congratulations also to winning connections.
