Matthew who is apprenticed to Cambridge trainer Craig Thornton had his first winning ride over fences on Thursday August 7 aboard  Seasons Greetings in a restricted open hurdle at Matamata.

Cropp, 16, a nephew of top jockey Lisa Cropp said he gets advice from aunt Lisa but she was initially sceptical about his chances in the racing game.
 
"She did not think I would make being a jockey full stop, but I've kept my eye on the prize and I've achieved a little bit of it today," he said.

Matthew wants to continue combining jumps racing with the flat, with an aim to become top apprentice and ride a Group One winner.
