It's Win, Win for Harry.

It was a double win for Uallrightharry at Fontwell today.  He started off by winning the "Best Turned Out" award for groom Aimee before going on to win the 3 mile 2 furlong handicap chase under Brendan Powell.  In his first ever handicap he was jumped off in the middle of the field of seven..  Two horses set out to make the pace and soon Harry took up a position between them and the chasing group.  Harry jumped well until he blundered at the 12th fence momentarily unbalancing Brendan.  They quickly recovered and this seemed to focus his concentration.  He maintained his 3rd position until closing up approaching the open ditch (the 3rd last) where he moved in between the front two, taking the lead himself 2 out.  He ran on well from there to win by 3 and a quarter lengths with the third placed horse a further 16 lengths behind.  A great day for his deserving owner, Sally Stanier.
