Stayed on well to take second for Tim Vaughan. Original quote: "Top effort last time when a close third at Carlisle - travelled well for much of the way in that race and jumped better too as he's had a habit of hitting a fence or two in the past. Same mark here today and Richard Johnson remains in the saddle and has a great overall record when riding Brian - 5 of his 6 wins have been with Dickie riding. Looks a tight little race with the Sherwood runner respected - but we are happy with him and should have be in the thick of things. Each-way."
