Only one runner over the weekend but it was another successful day at Kempton’s opening National Hunt fixture of the season, with Gallox Bridge keeping on gamely to win on his seasonal reappearance in the hands of Richard Johnson.

With a winner on the day last year and a double from our only two runners in 2011, it has proved a lucky meeting for us and I was delighted to see Gallox Bridge win his second race from just five starts over fences for his owner David Fox.
