Midnight Gem aims to go one better

Midnight Gem runs in the Huntingdon 1.40 which is a 2m 7f 129yd Novices' Handicap Chase with Jordan Nailor aboard and he takes a valuable 7lb off her back.

He sat in behind the leaders for the majorityof the race and looked destined to miss out on the places turning into the straight but really battled on well to get up for the runners up [...]
