JASON WEAVER, one of the season's leading apprentices, completed a double for Mick Naughton on Best Effort and Carlingford at Edinburgh yesterday to take the Richmond handler's seasonal total to 22, a personal best.

The jockey adopted differing approaches on the two winners, holding Best Effort up until well inside the sprint handicap's final furlong before making all on Carlingford in the George Boyd Handicap half an hour later.

Carlingford may make a swift reappearance in a handicap at Catterick tomorrow in which he would race off a lower mark than he did yesterday, thanks to the timetable for readjustment of ratings.
