What another ‘golden’ performance from our brave 11 year old veteran Goldan Jess last night at Chelmsford under Paul Hannigan, just beaten in a photo and nearly got the race in the Stewards as he got plenty of bumping from the winner.
The Racing Post report says it all:
Led, ridden and hard pressed 2f out, battled on well and sustained duel with winner from over 1f out, headed and bumped inside final furlong, kept on gamely and bumped again near finish, just held (op 8/1)
Flat jockeys who ride him always win on him second time…they just can’t go quick enough on Jess who always gallops all the way to the line. Some of his owners were there last night to shout him home and we are all proud of his effort. Sarah and Julie had him really smart and he won BTO too.
