“He was on pins last night thinking the meeting might be off, but he’s a cool as a cucumber in a race, “ said delighted owner-trainer David Brace following his grandson Connor’s fourth win of the season in the Dodson & Horrell PPORA Novice Riders Series Qualifier at Chaddesley Corbett

12 went to post, and in the testing conditions that saw many of the afternoon’s runners fail to get home, Connor once again rode an astute and  measured race.  Keeping William Money handy throughout, he joined the leaders across the back for the final time before  asserting as they climbed the hill for the final time.  Turning for home they were firmly in command a crossed the line ,  a comfortable 3 lengths clear of Sacre Too who ran a sound race giving his rider George Daly his best result to date
