Johnson notches another tonHeadlines
De La Bech jumps the last in the lead

Richard Johnson brought up a century of winners yet again in the Foundation Developments Novices' Handicap Hurdle at Ascot.

The universally liked jockey, perennial runner-up to Tony McCoy in the championship, reached the 100 mark for the 17th time in a row through De La Bech, trained by his boss, Philip Hobbs.

The 3-1 favourite was quite heroic in atrocious conditions as he made every yard of the three miles and fought off final rival Okafranca by a length and a quarter.

"I've just been very fortunate to have the support of Philip and some other very good trainers," said the 35-year-old Johnson, who later scored on Reve De Sivola in the big race.

"Myself and Tom O'Brien have been holding this horse up this season, but he has been too keen so we thought he should just bowl on.

"He's really a three-mile chaser, but hopefully there's more to come over hurdles too."
