How time flies when you're having fun!
It's hard to believe that we're already in mid July, it only seems like yesterday that we were all snowed under and in the midst of the All-Weather season.
Yet here we are only two weeks away from Glorious Goodwood.
Royal Ascot - the pinnacle of any professional jockeys season has been and gone. Unfortunately I was unable to ride into that prestigious winners enclosure aboard my biggest live chance of the week Raising Sand, but as always he put in a gutsy run and we finished third in the Hunt Cup. The Melbourne 10's Emten ran her heart out against the colts in The Coventry to finish fifth and I'm excited for the rest of the season with this filly!
Durston for the Highclere Thoroughbred Racing Syndicate was my biggest winner last month, he was an impressive winner of the Whitley Neill Handcraft Gin Handicap at Chester for Mr. Simcock.
This weekend we head to Newbury for the Super Sprint meeting - we have a couple of nice fillies entered in the prestigious race and I'm looking forward to hopefully bringing home the trophy for The Old Malthouse.
In other news I'm thrilled to now be an ambassador for BetVictor, it is a real honour to be one of their new horse racing ambassadors. It's an exciting time to be a jockey and I'll be bringing this enthusiasm to my work with BetVictor.
