Crockford is not easily impressed but he was on Friday by the exploits of the brilliant Cathy Gannon at Yarmouth. She looked lucky to stay on as Cut the Cackle jumped awkwardly out of the stalls and headed left. Cathy recovered her iron within the furlong and went on to lead four out. From there she repelled all raiders including a strong finish from Ian Burns and his mount the 6/4 favourite Trojan Rocket  – who propelled himself towards the leader as they raced for the line.

Cathy’s ride on the 10/1 winner of the Handicap has to be a candidate for ride of the season!
