Weird Al still unbeaten over fences

A good looking renewal of the Colin Parker Memorial Intermediate Chase at Carlisle didn't disappoint as Little Josh and Weird Al fought out a dead-heat in a thrilling finish.

Little Josh produced a fine front-running display under Sam Twiston-Davies producing several breathtaking leaps and the well-backed favourite, Cape Tribulation, never looked happy with the searching pace and was pulled up after jumping the eleventh.

The Hollinwell raced exuberantly before fading and will be better for the run as will Howard Johnson's Door Boy who travelled well into the straight until the lack of a run told.

He had joined Little Josh and Weird Al to make a line of three four from home but Twiston-Davies kicked again and looked to have sealed the race when Little Josh went clear with a huge leap at the third last.

He began to wilt on the demanding run to the post and Weird Al looked to have got up on the line despite conceding weight all round only for the judge to call a dead-heat in a race neither runner deserved to lose.

Weird Al's price was chopped to 11-2 for next month's Hennessy but he does have an alternative engagement for the Paddy Power Gold Cup at Cheltenham in a fortnight as do Little Josh and Door Boy.
