Racing news Waley-Cohens out of luck

Waley-Cohens out of luck6th March 2013

Robert and Sam Waley-Cohen were out of luck at Catterick with Rumbavu, who could only finish second in the John Wade Skip Hire Novices┬┤ Hunters┬┤ Chase to 50-1 chance Killary Bay.

Rumbavu, a winner of five point-to-points, was making his debut under Rules and was sent off the 11-8 favourite to give the Waley-Cohens a confidence boost ahead of Long Run's bid to regain the Cheltenham Gold Cup next week.

It was Waley-Cohen senior's first runner as a trainer at Catterick and Gold Cup-winning jockey Sam's first ride at the Richmondshire venue. Having travelled keenly early, the seven-year-old lost his place on the home turn before staying on again to grab second but well behind the Harriet Bethell-ridden winner.
