Back to zero winners on the 1st January but Katheefa started the year in style for us with a decent win at Southwell - a track he clearly thrives at. Ridden differently to his last win at Wolverhampton where Jimmy dropped his head on the line, the pair made the most of stall one and made all.
"Exposed sorts, but all seven could be given a chance in this fair sprint handicap. KATHEEFA was up to a career-high mark after returning from break with a win at Wolverhampton but it made little difference as he recorded his third C&D win. Travelling strongly off the front, he only had to be nudged out to score and is clearly a sprinter in top form. Another rise will be due now, but more wins here cannot be ruled out."
