FLAT-RACING jockey Jamie Gormley is back in the saddle and has had 13 rides over 14 days from Redcar to Newmarket.
While there have been no winners, he had two second places for his boss Iain Jardine of Carrutherstown.
At Thirsk on Monday he rode Logi into third spot for Rebecca Bastiman in a seven-furlong handicap.
Lining up against nine other runners, he went into third inside the final furlong and came in one and a half lengths adrift.
He was at Redcar on Sunday where he rode Ricksen in the seven-furlong novices stakes for Jardine, coming in fourth of the nine runner, five and a quarter lengths behind.
He and Jardine earned a fourth place at Ripon last Saturday when riding Mid Day Rush in the five-furlong maiden fillies stakes.
He had five rides at Redcar last Thursday, the best being fourth spot on Magical Effect for Ruth Carr in the six-furlong handicap.
He was ninth on board Katty D in the six-furlong maiden stakes, 11th on Golden Sandbanks in the handicap over one mile, two furlongs and 13 on Equidae in the seven-furlong handicap. All three rides were for Jardine.
Clearance ran a good race for jockey and trainer in the two-mile handicap at Beverley last Wednesday.
The 6/1 shot made its challenge over one furlong out and led narrowly but had no extra and was headed towards the finish, coming in three quarters of a length behind.
Reely Bonnie set off at 80/1 in the one-mile maiden fillies stakes at Thirsk last Tuesday and came in seventh of the 11 runners.
Gormley, again riding for Jardine, rallied the horse in the final furlong but it had no pace to challenge.
The partnership took second spot with Kraken Power in the novice auction stakes over six furlongs at Pontefract.
The horse was slowly into its stride but made headway three furlongs from home and was midfield when Gormley switched right and was pushed on over two furlongs out.
He pressed the leader from one furlong out and was just held to be beaten by a head.
Gormley and Jardine were at Newmarket on with Five Helmets which was entered into the one-mile, four-furlong handicap against nine other runners and the horse came in eighth.
Former Melbourne Cup runner Nakeeta was entered into the handicap over one mile, four furlongs at Pontefract and came seventh of the 11 runners at 14/1.
