Harry meets Bob
Harry Cobden's First ride for us was a successful ones, he steers Small Bad Bob to get his head in front at Fontwell. Winning the Virgin Bet Handicap Hurdle, the biggest race on the card.
Harry had never ridden for us before but was pleased he came down to Fontwell for his only ride of the day.
Bob was prominent and leading for most of the race until he met a gluey bit of ground at the bottom of the back straight where he was headed and dropped to around 6th coming into the home straight. Harry got after him and Bob responded and showed great resolve to rally and get up after the last.
