Larry Looby achieved the rare fete of winning four races in a row when bravely battling all the way up the run in at Sedgefield on Wednesday evening to win by a neck.
On the fastest surface he has raced on to date his jumping was good but not as eye catching had it had been on his two previous runs at Cartmel, but you can probably put that down to an early slow pace, because once they quickened his jumping became more fluent under Emma Smith-Chaston who was also completing a four timer on the horse.
Not only has Larry Looby proved himself to be a model of consistency, but he also showed plenty of guts to wear down the eventual runner up.
