Thankful For Third

Kingscombe returned to his favourite course, Southwell, today and finished 3rd in a 2 mile handicap.  Connections must have been thankful that he got a run as he bucked his jockey, Rab Havlin, off when playing up at the start.  Rab demonstrated fine gymnastic skills by actually landing on his feet and was none the worse for wear.  The field set off with Kingscombe on the inside at the back.  He seemed to want to move up in the straight for the first time but was trapped behind horses, so Rab pulled him to the outside going away from the stands.  A couple of runners dropped away down the back straight and Kingscombe turned for home in 4th place.  He went past one into third but was never going to get close to the two in front who were well clear at the line.
