HAVING gone close when beaten by a head last week at Lingfield Rampant Lion and David Probert didn’t let anything get between them and the winning post! Probert held Rampant Lion up and had to switch right when challenging over a furlong out and not having a clear run. He always seemed to be in command and won convincingly in Dr Jim Walker’s distinctive lime green colours.
William said ‘Great to have a winner for Dr Jim who decided after the Tattersalls Autumn Horses In Training Sale that a change of scenery might be beneficial for Rampant Lion. He is a lovely horse and obviously very well handled by Mark up in Middleham. He has settled in well at Phantom House and is a great addition to the yard.’
