On Friday the 15th November, Thomas won the David Johnson Memorial Intermediate Handicap Hurdle. One could not ask for a more fantastic start to the season; two runs at Cheltenham and two wins!
Thomas moved up a class on his return to the home of National Hunt Racing, however as in his previous run, he ran well to hold off a talented field, winning by a convincing ¾ of a length.
Thomas was reported to be in fine fettle, enjoying a good mud bath on Saturday morning.
Owners, trainers and local members of the public joined Warrick Knott and Simon Kirby from Thomas Crapper & Co., Robin & Claire Dickin from Robin Dickin Racing, Charlie Post (the winning jockey) and most importantly Paige Jeffrey (she who makes Thomas look lovely for his outings), for an evening of Celebration.
