MARTIN HARLEY RODE a 25/1 shot to victory at Kempton Park this evening.
The 26-year-old jockey from Trentagh steered Sir Jack Layden to a win in the 32red handicap, the 7.40pm race at Kempton.
The David Brown-trained four-year-old was sent off at 25/1 odds but, under the direction of Harley, came out the winner.
Harley set a moderate pace early on in the 12 furlong race, before making his move 3f from home.
Harley and Sir Jack Layden held off the advances of From Sixties Love and Bold Appeal inside the final furlong to take the win.
It was Sir Jack Layden’s first win since July 2013 when, with Graham Lee in the saddle, the horse owned by the triumverate of Ron Hull, David Brown and Clive Watson, took a win in a three-horse race at Ayr.
On Sunday, Harley scored a Grade One win in Longchamp when he rode Goldream to succes in the Qatar Prix de l’Abbaye de Longchamp for Robert Cowell.Tags:
