LANGHOLM jockey Jamie Gormley headed a competitive £50,000 handicap at Chester on August 6 on the Iain Jardine-trained Tor.

The Carrutherstown handler has his Hetland Hill stable in tremendous form, and the 6-1 chanced dictated from the start, under a fine ride from the in-form Gormley.

“He loves being ridden from the front and had a low weight so everything was in his favour,” said the winning jockey.

The 24-year-old, who is having his best-ever season, was making a victorious debut at the course. “My first ride round Chester has been a winning one,” he said.

Ayrshire jockey, David Allan, won the following seven-furlong handicap aboard 4-1 chance Breakable, recording a third course victory.

Hawick jockey, Jason Hart, enjoyed a victorious start to August when he recorded his first success at Goodwood to win the five-furlong handicap on 33-1 shot El Astronaute.

“He has got a good attitude and is on an upward curve,” said the winning jockey, who was back in the winner’s enclosure two days later, when he rode Bodacious Name to a 7-1 victory in the concluding two-mile handicap at Nottingham.

The Hart victory trail continued the following evening at Musselburgh, when he partnered The Stalking Moon to head the seven-furlong handicap.

He then enjoyed a 40-1 win aboard Florenza in the feature handicap at Thirsk on August 5.

Over the jumps at Perth on August 1, Northumberland trainer, Susan Corbett, and jockey son James won the maiden hurdle race with 12-1 chance Ebony Rose.

Ayrshire trainer, Mike Smith has his Galston stable in fine form and Firstymini made all the running to head the two-mile handicap hurdle race.

Northumberland jockey, and former Northern Area ladies’ point-to-point champion, Catherine Walton, rode Johnny Go to win the concluding amateur riders’ handicap hurdle race.

Another Scottish jockey in winning form at Goodwood was the in-form Danny Tudhope. The Irvine jockey rode Truth or Dare to a 6-1 victory in the concluding seven-furlong handicap on August 2.

Jamie Gormley rode the progressive Yes You to win the six-furlong handicap at Redcar the same afternoon.

Over the jumps at Perth, the Pauline Robson-trained Martiloo carried the colours of East Lothian owners Ray and Anita Anderson Green to win the two-mile handicap hurdle race.

The only mare in the field, the seven-year-old travelled well throughout. “We thought she was going to be useful as she ran behind Douvan in France as a youngster, but she has had sinus problems and with that has required several operations,” explained Ray.

Carluke trainer, Keith Dalgleish, who completed a milestone last month with 15 winners in July, saddled Mirsaale to head the two-mile handicap hurdle race.

Completing a hat-trick of Scottish wins was Grand National-winning trainer, Lucinda Russell, who sent Thorpe from her Milnathort stable to land the conditional jockeys' handicap hurdle race in the hands of Hawick jockey, Blair Campbell.

Iain Jardine’s yard is in great form and the Carrutherstown trainer added a further success to his tally when Mable Lee won the fillies nursery at Thirsk on August 4.

Langholm trainer, James Ewart, made a worthwhile journey to Bangor, where Civil Unrest posted a 33-1 win in the two-mile handicap.

Keith Dalgleish celebrated an across-the-card treble on August5. He completed a double at Hamilton, saddling Glenrowan Rose to win the five-furlong stakes, and Taxmeifyoucan to land the 1m 3f handicap.

Whatsthemessage justified favouritism to complete the hat-trick, winning the one-mile handicap at Thirsk.

Hawick jockey, Rowan Scott, rode 6-1 chance Set in Stone to win the concluding handicap at Hamilton.
