Southwell: Gifford ends losing run with Skycab.

Byline: Colin Russell

JOSH GIFFORD sent out his first winner since April, and his first on the course for more than five years, when Skycab landed the

21/2-mile handicap chase under amateur David Dunsdon, the pair holding the late charge of Harik by a length and a quarter.

"The old man doesn't send horses up here very often," said his son Nick. "This win will have done him good, as he's flying to America to attend George Sloan's funeral on Monday and he's not looking forward to that."
