Seven rides for Jamie



JAMIE Gormley has had a quieter week, with seven rides at various courses, including York and Chester.
He rode no winners but had some good places for different trainers.
His best result came at Beverley in the one-mile, two-furlong handicap on Tuesday.
He rode to a third place on Jennies Gem for Ollie Pears in the 10-strong field.
Inside the final furlong the horse had every chance but came in one and three-quarter lengths adrift of the winner.
He was at Thirsk on the same day and rode Raffle King into eighth place for Ruth Carr in the five-furlong handicap.
Seventeen runners set off and Gormley came in three and three-quarter lengths behind the winner.
At Carlisle on Monday he rode a good third for Iain Jardine with Ishebayorgrey in the one-mile handicap.
The horse dwelt at the start but was soon in touch and was ridden on from two furlongs out and kept on to the finish. There were 14 runners and Gormley came in two and three-quarter lengths behind.
Riding for Tim Easterby at Doncaster on Sunday, Gormley was on board Confessional in the five-furlong handicap.
He had a slight lead at the two-furlong mark but was passed and weakened towards the finish.
He came fourth of the seven runners three and three-quarter lengths adrift.
He rode Tor into fifth place for Iain Jardine in the one-mile, four and a half furlong handicap at Chester last Saturday.
Nine runners set off and Gormley was chasing the leaders until one furlong from home after which he weakened and was six and a quarter lengths behind.
Also at Chester he rode Powerallied into ninth place for Richard Fahey. There were 14 runners and the horse was five lengths away.
Gormley secured a good result at York last Friday when riding in the one-mile, two and a half furlong .
He was on board Beverley Bullt for Lawrence Mullaney and came in fourth of the 14 runners, three lengths adrift. The horse took an early lead but was passed well over one furlong out.
