Just Cause, who chased Connor Brace and William Money home in the first of the Dodson & Horrell PPORA Club Members Novice Riders Series Qualifiers at Barbury, gave Tim his first win of the new campaign in the CA Novice Riders Contest at Cottenham on New Year’s Eve.  The emphatic 40 length victory was not without incident with the pairing surviving a blunder at the penultimate – the same fence that had put paid to Tim’s chances on board Bivouac in the Men’s Open.
