Horse & Hound - - Point-to-point -

HARRY THORPE-COD­MAN’S first visit to Dun­combe Park was one to re­mem­ber af­ter claim­ing his de­but win aboard the Dale Peters-trained geld­ing, You Too Pet (pic­tured), in the club mem­bers’ con­di­tions race (for vet­eran and novice rid­ers).

The pair cruised home eight lengths ahead of Saint Breiz and Mar­cus Haigh.

“Dale has al­ways been a fam­ily friend, but this is my first sea­son work­ing for him at his Sawtry yard near Peter­bor­ough,” ex­plained the 22-year-old.

“Last year was a write-off, so I’m look­ing to kick-start my ca­reer in 2018. You Too Pet has plenty of stamina, loves soft ground and I’d like to try him in a maiden hun­ters chase later in the sea­son.”
