Mr Whippy has been consistant at his level this year, and having been beaten a short margin at Catterick on his penultimate start and then finished 4th from a wide draw at Yarmouth, it was great for him to get up in the shadow of the post under Jimmy.
"The first division of a moderate sprint handicap. The leaders may have gone off a shade too quick with the winner coming from a detached last. WHIPPHOUND has done most of his racing over 6f since the summer, but he was only just beaten over C&D off 2lb lower two starts back. Soon outpaced in rear, the strong pace up front played right into his hands and, utilising the strip up the nearside rail, he got there in the last stride."

"Whipphound just lost out the last time he ran here and he´s probably more of a 6f horse, but they went quick today and he just got there."
