Jono junior has a long way to go matching his father’s 900 winners in the saddle – including the unique Champion Hurdle and Gold Cup double achieved by the legendary Dawn Run at Cheltenham – but the youngster is tipped to have a bright future ahead of him.
Stop Talking was Jonjo junior’s second win in three days following his success on-board Palmers Hill at Cheltenham on Sunday.
