Val wins his third race of the year under Jimmy at Catterick. This was a race for 6yo's plus so was a great oppertunity for older sprinters like Val!
"Mainly exposed performers in a fair handicap. The gallop was reasonable and the field fanned across the track in the straight. Rail movements added 15yds to the official distance. VALLARTA is a tough sort who had the run of the race and did enough to notch his third win of the year. He should continue to give a good account."
