|How long have you been at Harry Fry Racing?
This will be my fifth season. I never rode as a child but spent time at the British Racing School in Newmarket before joining Malcolm Jefferson’s where I was based for a year before moving to Dorset.
What attracted you to racing?
My father had horses with Tim Easterby, and the excitement of a day at the races supporting his runners got me hooked. I grew up near Doncaster, so also enjoyed some fantastic days at the St Leger meeting with friends and family.
What do you think of the new facilities at Higher Crockermoor?
The hill gallop is superb, it’s lovely to ride and has a gradual incline all the way. The great bonus is you don’t get run away with, at Seaborough you pulled up running downhill which posed a few problems if you were riding a fresh one!
What do you enjoy most about your job?
Watching the horses I ride progress, it’s a great buzz when they run well. I ride Lightly Squeeze at home and last year it was brilliant to see him winning three times of the bounce.
What’s your favourite horse at Harry Fry Racing?
It has to be Lightly Squeeze, he’s talented and a very comfortable ride. He was running a great race in the Betfair Hurdle earlier in the year before falling and I look forward to seeing how he progresses as the season goes on.
What’s the horse your most looking forward to seeing run this season?
King Roland, he is an exciting novice chaser for the yard, everything he did last season over hurdles was a bonus as he’s a scopey horse.
If you could own any horse in racing who would it be?
Enable, she has done some great things for British Racing and it will be great to see her progeny on the racecourse in years to come.
