Temper Trap won his 3rd consecutive race yesterday evening at Ripon under a fine ride from Alex Jary.
He was looking to follow up on impressive victories at both Doncaster and Hamilton in recent weeks and was drawn in stall 7 for the 7 runner event.
Alex was happy to hold him up in the early stages of the contest, at the 3 marker, he began to make smooth headway and took the lead with 2 furlongs to go. He went on to score impressively by a couple of lengths, winning the same race for the 2nd time at Ripon.
It was the 12th career victory for the Tim Easterby trained 6 year old and judging by the performance, there is plenty more to come from him. He has been a fantastic syndicate horse for his owners and for Ontoawinner.
Well done to Tim and his staff on another fantastic win.
