It was great to get our first win of the season on the board today, when Tinkwood won division two of The Open Maiden at Chadderley Corbett.
Given an excellent ride by Will Biddick, Tinkwood sat mid-division before finding another gear on the home bend. She came to take the lead at the second last but looked to have lost her chance when she slipped on landing.
However, a combination of ability, fitness and excellent riding ensured that she jumped the last well and got up close home to secure victory for owner Eric Brook.
The plan is for her next outing to be at Sheriff Hutton on Sunday 15th January in the Restricted race.
