I thought he rode No To Trident well at Doncaster last Saturday . He was
trapped behind horses on the rails in the 10 furlongs maiden race , soon
made his mind up that there was no chance going that route , worked
his way to the outside and accelerated clear , on the 33/1 shot , in so
doing boxing in Neil Callan on the favourite .
He only seems to have ridden winners for David Evans so I assume he
is the trainer ‘ s son
I thought Casablanca Minx got him out of trouble actually. It was obvious from over 1f out that the leader, with his rider’s whip in his right hand, was going to keep drifting until he hit the rail – Master Evans ought to have shown more awareness in predicting this IMO but left it until he had been crossed before switching around – at which point the horse showed a pretty electric turn of foot for a low grade performer and, as I said, bailed the young man out.
Still, I grant that he did well to settle the horse and has a good sense of timing – he just needs to develop the ability to predict what other horses are about to do if he is to move on to the next level.
