Jones daydreams on Digpast
Wednesday 07 February 1996
Partnering the same horse in the Peach Amateur Riders Handicap, Jones and Digpast were woefully slow out of the stalls and, to their supporters' dismay, Jones compounded their problems by racing wide of the rest of the field. The combination ran on through beaten horses, but could finish only sixth behind Don't Drop Bombs and Julie Feilden.
Frankie Dettori initiated a double in the Plum Claiming Stakes on Sweet Supposin, after being shown how not to do it by trainer Chris Dwyer. Last time out, Dwyer had ridden the horse himself when they were beaten into second by Masnun.
This time, with Dettori in the saddle on Sweet Supposin, the positions were reversed. Dwyer said: "I hit the front too soon last time, so I showed Frankie a video of that and he judged it to perfection today."
