Anyharminasking: easy winner at Sedgefield on Sunday

John Grossick (

Sedgefield: Sunday

It is his point-to-point victory over Constitution Hill which makes Anyharminasking such an intriguing prospect and he continued to display his talent under rules, recording a second successive handicap win.

The Jonjo O’Neill-trained runner was up 13lb for an easy win at Catterick earlier in the month but the 5-6 favorite was still able to saunter clear in the 2m1f handicap hurdle. The win prompted some bookmakers to cut him to 12-1 (from 25) for the Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

O’Neill said: “We were happy with the performance, although what he’s beaten and how the form stands up I’m not sure.

“He’ll probably have to try his hand in a better race now but he’s starting to learn his job nicely and he’ll jump a fence in the future. It’s great for his owner Gay Smith.”

He was a first winner at the track for Jonjo O’Neill Jr. after some frustrating moments in his 11 previous defeats at the north-east venue.

He told Sky Sports Racing: “It’s been a bit of a bogey track for me. I’ve had four horses in front at the last and fallen, so I was fairly happy with that to be honest.”

Hughes treble

Brian Hughes has ridden more winners at Sedgefield than anywhere else and a Sunday treble moved his tally at the track to 195.

Heartbreak Kid ran out an easy winner of the 2m½f novice handicap chase before he landed the final two races on the card with Enlighten and Leeswood Lily.
