JAMIE Gormley completed a double on the all-weather at Southwell on Monday, as the weather took its toll this week on planned jumps fixtures in the north.

The Langholm jockey rode Mr Carbonator to head the opening nursery, before partnering Good Time Ahead to land the staying handicap.

Mr Carbonator was narrowly beaten at Newcastle last month, and made amends to clinch a 4-1 success on his Fibresand debut. The well-fancied Good Time Ahead travelled well for a more comfortable success.

Both winners are trained in North Yorkshire by Philip Kirby.

The big freeze cost Kelso its prestigious Borders National meeting – part of a valuable £115,000 card – on Sunday, while Musselburgh’s Monday fixture was also abandoned.

Gormley previously worked for Langholm-based trainer, James Ewart, who was the only Scottish trainer to saddle a winner at Sedgefield, on December 8.

He sent Charmant from his Craig Farm Stables to land the two-mile novice hurdle race.

Ewart was quickly back in the winner’s enclosure when Aristo Du Plessis landed the two-mile handicap hurdle race at Wetherby the following afternoon. The favourite was ridden to victory by Hawick jockey, Craig Nichol.

St Boswells owners, Paul and Clare Rooney, had a winner at Market Rasen on December 7 when Barney Dwan was a winning favourite in the three-mile novice chase.

The couple were back in the winner’s enclosure the following afternoon at Exeter, where Time to Move On posted a 3-1 victory in the bumper.

Hawick jockey, Kieron Edgar, rode Schnabel to win the conditional jockeys' novice hurdle race at Ludlow on December 6.

Jim Goldie celebrated a double on the all-weather at Newcastle. The Glasgow trainer saddled Thello to an impressive success in a competitive one-mile handicap.

He then watched his stablemate, Star Cracker, record a third career win after posting a 12-1 victory in the six-furlong handicap race.

Red Rising justified favouritism when posting a comfortable nine-length success in the three-mile handicap hurdle race at Southwell, on December 5, for St Boswells owners Paul and Clare Rooney.
