FATHER AND SON DUO MAKE THE BIG DIFFERENCE AS CURTAIN COMES DOWN ON JULY RACEDAY IN PERTH.

‘Big Difference’ landed the feature race for father and son combination, Tim and Harry Reed, today at Perth Racecourse.

The Northumberland raider saw off 13-8 favourite ‘And The New’ by two and three-quarter lengths in the Heidsieck Monopole Party Goes On Handicap Chase.

After his sole ride of the day, Harry Reed said: “He came quite cheaply from Ben Pauling and hasn’t been with us very long. We’ve been running him over three miles and it was dad that suggested we drop back to 2m 4f. I didn’t agree at the time but the trainer has been proved correct again! I’d say he will stick to this trip for the time being back at the likes of here and maybe even try for 2m 5f races at Market Rasen.”

Laura Morgan and Brian Hughes teamed up for a short-priced double with ‘Lake Shore Drive’ and ‘Illusion Of Time’. The former took the Clansman’s Davie And Jim Memorial Handicap Hurdle by three-quarters of a length while the latter defied a 7lb penalty to secure the concluding Join Racing TV Now Open National Hunt Flat Race.
