Medermit: Refused

Medermit: Refused

Medermit lost his place at the head of the Irish Independent Arkle market after refusing in the Tom Jones Memorial HTJ Centre Ltd Novices' Chase at Huntingdon.

Everything was going according to plan for Alan King's grey, sent off the 1-5 favourite, through the early stages.

However having been sent off in front by Wayne Hutchinson, he pulled himself up on the approach to the sixth, the first fence on the far side of the track.

He appeared none the worse when returning to the paddock and it could be that Medermit, who usually races just off the pace, may not have relished being out in front.

The drama didn't end there with a thrilling finish fought out to the race by Sergeant Pink and Harry Tricker.

The former, trained by Steve Gollings, passed the post with three-quarters of a length to spare over Gary Moore's charge but the places were reversed after a lengthy stewards' enquiry.

Medermit was pushed out to 14-1 from 10-1 by Sky Bet for the Arkle. Get Me Out Here is now their 12-1 favourite.
