Jolly's Cracked It Wins Again
Jolly's Cracked It maintained his unbeaten record over hurdles at Ascot on Friday despite an uncharacteristic mistake at the second last hurdle.
He had jumped really well until then in a race run at a muddling pace and was in full command until his error which cost him momentum at a crucial time.
I liked the way he found more when pressed and he will have learned from the experience.
I'm sure Jolly's Cracked It will be suited by a better race run at a decent gallop because he is so good with a lead.
Hopefully he will get that when he goes to Sandown early in January for the Tolworth Hurdle which I have had in mind for him for a while.
