Relinquishing a winning ride isn’t usually cause for celebration but Tommy Berry was happy to join the toast when Move High broke his maiden at Canterbury on Wednesday.

Move High is trained by the jockey’s father Kevin and understandably, Berry was sounded out for the mount.

He had ridden the horse in six of its 16 starts before Wednesday with the best result a placing at Hawkesbury in August when Move High was beaten more than 8-1/2 lengths.

It’s fair to say Berry isn’t Move High’s biggest fan so he turned down the ride and told his father and mother Julie, a part-owner of the horse, to stick with rival jockey Kathy O’Hara.

“I haven’t had much luck on the horse,” Berry said.

“He doesn’t seem to go for me.

“Kathy told them she thought the horse could be competitive at Canterbury so I said to them to keep her on. It’s a well deserved win.”

Berry was unplaced in the race on Pounamu but was one of the first to congratulate the winning connections.

For her part, O’Hara said she earned her share of the prize the hard way.

“I’m puffing more than he is,” O’Hara said.

“He’s hard work but he got the job done.”

Move High dominated from the front and outstayed his rivals in a slog to the line.

He beat Caribbean Concert by 1-1/4 lengths with Tokyo King a half head away third.

Chris Waller made his mark on the meeting with a winning treble courtesy of Feast For Eyes, Gigolo and import Now’s The Time while apprentice Jess Taylor had a day to remember riding her first city double.

An excited Taylor took out the second race on Flys Away for Scott Singleton then led throughout to score on the David Vandyke-trained Lofiel in the Hyland Race Colours Handicap.

“The last six months have been outstanding, things have gone to a new level,” Taylor said.

“I’ve had my first Saturday winner in the last six months and it has just been outstanding.”

Singleton notched a double when Adjective won the final race.
