Jolly's Cracked It

The five-year-old made it two out of two at Ascot on November 21, surviving a bad blunder at the second-last flight before regaining his composure on the run in.

Fry put the blunder down to inexperience and has had the Tolworth in early January in mind for him for some time.

Writing in his www.stanjames.com blog, Fry said: "He gave us all a bit of a heart-stopping moment with his mistake at the second-last. Nick (Scholfield) did well to keep the partnership intact and actually he did well to pick himself up after the mistake and hold off the two challengers.

"They're novices for a reason so it's a step-by-step process in getting experience. Frustratingly, he was very good over his hurdles up until that point but we can't take anything away from him really and he won well. Hopefully he'll have a crack at the Tolworth in six weeks' time now.

" I think it's just inexperience that's behind the late errors. The more practice he gets on the racecourse, the better he'll be. And I think a more strongly-run race will suit him as well, where he can get a lead for further hopefully. So we can go there, be up in class against some very good horses and look forward to it.

"He's a real mudlark although, saying that, good horses go on all types of ground. He did win on good ground previously but we definitely think the softer it is, the better he'll be. And hopefully we'll get soft ground for the Sandown race."
