Britain's Youngest National Hunt Trainer Speaks To Wessex FM

Britain's youngest National Hunt trainer, who's based near Beaminster, says his first season in charge has exceeded his expectations.

Harry Fry, who's 25, took on former boss Paul Nicholls' satellite yard at Seaborough last July, when racing's bosses granted him  his own 'jumps' licence.

He's had 20 winners in the season, which ended on Saturday, the day after his best known horse, 'Rock On Ruby' came 3rd in the Irish Champion hurdle at the Punchestown festival.

Harry's hoping to add to the current string of 20 horses under his care, and increase the number of winners.

He's hoping for some more success in high profile races with his former champion hurdler, who, he says, is likely to remain running in top flight 2 mile hurdle races rather than switch to 'chasing'.

Another of his charges who has won a big race this year has been 'Opening Batsman', which took the Racing Plus Steeplechase at Kempton Park in February.
