Two weeks ago I brought to your attention the early riding feats of 4kg claimer Yvette Lewis.

Having learned to ride horses at pony club, she gravitated to Sue Grills barn and slowly over the next two years Grills taught her how to ride a racehorse.

You may recall she started her life in the saddle a month ago with a flourish, winning 2 of her first 3 rides no less.

Well, for those wanting to follow this seemingly gifted young hoop, she rides again at Tamworth today.

She’s been entrusted with three mounts: Apache Lad in race 5; Lonely Orphan in race 7 and Billy Bent Ear in the last.

Oddly, despite having a few runners at the meet, her Master Grills has not put her on any of them.

Rival trainers Connie Greig, Leslie Jeffries and Colin Dixon are using her services.

Ladbrokes has all three of her mounts out the door in the market with Billy Bent Ear the shortest at $9, followed by Apache Lad at $12 and Lonely Orphan $101.

But Yvette might surprise a few. Remember this is Tamworth, it’s where she is employed and is the home of the two winners she has ridden thus far.

Race 5’s Apache Lad was a closing 4th in a Bm58 last start over 1400m and should appreciate the extra 200m of this race and is a genuine place hope after drawing gate 2.

In race 7, her mount Lonely Orphan has been scratched. She is now on Red Knot in the same race. If you could take a moment and say        Race 7 Red Knot ($26)  is a middle distance horse resuming from a spell but did win a trial recently so has place claims.

But Race 8’s Billy Bent Ear is worth having a crack at.

He won a BM 66 a few runs back while on the limit weight. He has since been beaten 2 lengths in a BM 58 when carrying 58.5. With Yvette’s 4kg claim he is on the limit again, this time in a BM 58 and has drawn gate 2.

I think I’ll have a bit of the $9 is offering re him.
