Harris resumes training career.

JOHN HARRIS relaunches his training career at Lingfield today, when he saddles the first runner from his new base at Storrington, West Sussex, writes Graham Green.

Harris, who retired as a jump jockey five years ago, has sent out 21 winners from his two previous locations - a yard at Southwell racecourse and then Woolsthorpe in Lincolnshire, from where he departed last November.

"I moved both times because business

wasn't going too well, and I hope it will be third time lucky from here," explained Harris, 37, who has charge of a string of 10.

The appearance of the Harris-trained Petane in the Windward Isles Amateur Riders' Handicap also provides a first mount for Nick Sheridan, who has worked at Pulborough for the last 12 years, firstly for Guy Harwood and more recently for Amanda Perrett.
