Richard Johnson Treble....
The card appeared a low key affair, as can be expected at this time of year with festivals a plenty. The action however was top drawer with Richard Johnson stealing the show with a treble.
The meeting kicked off with a novice hurdle and in the paddock Rock the Kasbah and Inner Drive were the two to concentrate on, and in the race so it proved with the two of them locked together, only for Rock the Kasbah to nod right on the line.
Gassin Golf has contested some really hot handicaps and it was a surprise he was still a maiden over hurdles. The combination of being dropped in grade and piloted by a man in form were just the ticket though as he powered clear in the handicap hurdle.
The Skyfarmer was the other winner in the treble in what proved to be a fairly straightforward success. He is a big powerful looking horse who is only going to improve from what he does at the moment.
But for a midweek it was a thoroughly entertaining days action..Star of the show, take a bow Richard Johnson.
