Head On for Simon Cox made his debut over fences a winning one at Worcester under Tom O’Brien in a dramatic race!

The race will go down in history as it provided jockey Tom O’Brien with his 1,000th career win.

The race itself was far from straightforward with Head On frequently jumping left and then making a serious blunder at the 11th.

His chance looked remote turning for home, but his stamina kicked it and despite Tom losing his whip at the second last, he stayed on strongly to beat the favourite by a length and a half.
