Grace & Dotty Maiden Hurdle 2m 1/2f  going Gd

The race got off to a good pace with three clear market leaders upfront dictating, one being a good ex-flat horse. Codey was prominent throughout, jumping well until losing position three out, when he was carried right and hampered slightly. He ran on and finished pretty well, running better than result suggests. Sean was happy with him, saying he settled better than last time he rode him at Worcester and suggesting as a consequence he maybe kept to his gallop and a longer trip may suit.

Martin concluded we aim for straight over fences next time, staying around the same trip, which will hopefully suit Cody’s pace and jumping ability better. 

Jockey feedback was all positive, see below.
