Another winner for Jennie’s Basford Grange racing stables

JONJO O’NEILL junior brilliantly rode Stop Talking to victory for the Basford Grange yard, near Leek, of Jennie Candlish (pictured) at Ludlow Races today.

O’Neill, son of champion National Hunt jockey-turned successful trainer Jonjo senior, patiently rode the six-year-old at the back of the seven-strong field in the conditional jockeys’ novices handicap hurdle, before moving up to surge clear at the last obstacle.

It was O’Neill junior’s second win on Stop Talking in a fortnight, following up the mare’s success at Southwell as 5/4 favourite on November 20, but on this latest occasion landed more generous odds of 9/2 for punters.
