Some horses don’t enjoy being ridden like that, and he is one.- Advertisement – Ben Pauling is weighing up two handicap options at the Ladbrokes Winter Carnival at Newbury for multiple Grade Two winner Global Citizen.The eight-year-old failed to complete a race for the first time in his career when pulling up on his seasonal return in the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter last week.- Advertisement –
