It was only yesterday that Temper Trap secured our 300th winner at Leicester and some 22 hours and 220 miles later at Carlisle, he delivers number 301 in game fashion under a strong ride from 3lb claimer – Sean Kirrane.
Sent off at 6/4 favourite for the 8 runner contest, Sean was happy to sit towards the tail end of the field in the early furlongs. At the 3 furlong marker, as they rounded the bend for home, Sean angled Temper out for a run and he responded in kind to go into a share of the lead by the 2 marker. Sean got into maximum drive and Temper held off all challengers to land his 9th career victory.
In just less than a month, he has won 4 races and came second in 5 starts. He is thoroughly enjoying his racing and Tim and all of his team have done an amazing job to keep him in such good order.
A big well done to his owners on another marvelous success.
