What a finish!! There's three of them on the line and it's the Champion Jockey Richard Johnson who comes out on top aboard Muthabir in the 1871 Handicap Hurdle 🙌

A great win for Muthabir today at Ludlow. Given a fine ride by Richard Johnson, he was up with the pace all the way and apart from one mistake, he jumped brilliantly and he rallied after the last to hold on by a neck.
He has been an absolute star for his owners The Adlestrop Experience having won six times and being placed on many occasions. Richard Johnson has ridden him three times and won every time.
Dicky has never been riding better and it’s only a matter of time before he gets that knighthood and we will try and help him get past AP’s record.
We will see what the handicapper does before deciding on his next race. He appears to need every yard of three miles these days and we will try and step him up if possible.
