THRILLING FINISH AT KEMPTON BUT NO SUCCESS FOR DOCTOR PARKES

THRILLING FINISH AT KEMPTON BUT NO SUCCESS FOR DOCTOR PARKES

Although the records will show Doctor Parkes only finished seventh at Kempton in the six furlong handicap this evening, the effort deserved better and he was involved in a blanket finish with five horses crossing the line together, only just over a length back from the winner,

He had been squeezed up early on and jockey Aaron Jones had to take a pull and as a result lost quite a bit of ground, but a storming finish in the last furlong saw him finish as well as anyone, but just had too much to do to get to the places.
