A good start to the week after plenty of placed efforts recently. Chappy followed up his heavy ground Ayr win with a hard fought victory under Jimmy at Catterick, the ground was dryng quickly but we got away with it!
"A wide-open looking handicap. The first pair fought it out on the stands' side. CHAPLIN BAY was well placed off the home turn and, after tracking to the near rail, dug deep to get up on the wire. The 7yo was up 3lb for ending a drought at Ayr nine days earlier, and Ruth Carr evidently has him back in rude health as this is the first time he's managed to follow up."
