As the fifth annual All-Weather Championships swing into week two, top jockey Luke Morris has already made a flying start while leading lady Josephine Gordon has a special milestone in her sights.
MORRIS AMONG WINNERS AHEAD OF US MISSION
LUKE MORRIS, the former Champion All-Weather jockey, has set his sights on snatching back his title from arch rival Adam Kirby this winter and was among the winners at Wolverhampton on Saturday night when Mraseel helped him to a treble. Morris will be missing this week’s domestic action, however, as he flies out to California to ride crack British sprinter Marsha in the Breeders’ Cup.
LEADING GIRL RIDER IN DETERMINED MOOD
Last season’s Champion Apprentice JOSEPHINE GORDON, who edged closer to her maiden century with a double at Newcastle on the opening day of the All-Weather Season at Newcastle last week, is hoping to achieve her latest milestone in November. She moved onto 94 when getting Tenedos home for boss Hugo Palmer at Kempton. “I’m going to be keeping busy on the All-Weather so I hope to get to my target within the next few weeks,” she says.
MOORE IS HOT AT CHELMSFORD
RYAN MOORE graced the Chelmsford City Polytrack last Thursday, less than 48 hours before taking his first ever Group One Racing Post Trophy and helping Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien achieve a record of 26 top level successes in one year. Globetrotting Moore stopped off at the Essex track to partner Diagnostic for Newmarket based William Haggas in the fillies’ handicap.
