Munce on a roll after fall

CASINO kid Chris Munce could have been in hospital yesterday, instead he rode a double at Toowoomba.

The 41-year-old was thrown from his mount, Shabroushka, on the way to the barriers at Ipswich on Tuesday.

Doctors at Ipswich Base Hospital cleared the two-time Golden Slipper winner of any breaks and handed him a medical certificate to ride yesterday.

And he wasted no time, guiding a 20-1 winner in the opening race at Toowoomba before taking out the city’s most famous race, The Weetwood Handicap.

Munce lobbed home first on rough Mick Nolan hope Topping and finished second aboard another 20-1 hope Rama Kaho in the fourth.

But that was all canapes to his feature win on board the Norm Hilton-trained Poor Judge in the Weetwood.

Poor Judge has now won three in a row since Munce took the ride, graduating from a class six, to an open quality and now a listed race

Munce has guided the fortunes of a Melbourne Cup winner, a Cox Plate winner and a total of 35 Group One races.

Queensland trainers must be rapt to have his services available when scanning the list of potential jockeys for hire.
