Dream stuff for Reddington
An understandably thrilled John Reddington
He put up a pound overweight at eleven stone eight but that made not one whit of difference to the outcome and Reddington explained: "That's my first ride and first winner and it's something I always wanted to do. I'd be good friends with lads like Richard Hughes and James Collins."
Winning trainer Charlie Swan said: "John's a building contractor in London and he's forty.
"This has always been a nice horse. He's just been a backward sort and it took a while to get him out.
"He's from a good old family of ours." (AM & EM)
