Consistent Major Jumbo lands deserved big prize at York

Sun 14 Oct 2018

Josephine Gordon steered Major Jumbo to a lucrative success in the Coral Sprint Trophy at York.

Kevin Ryan’s grey rounded off last season with victory over this course and distance and made a successful reappearance at Newmarket in April.

Although he had failed to add to his tally since, he has run some fine races in defeat, most notably finishing a close-up third in the Wokingham Stakes at Royal Ascot in June.

The four-year-old disappointed on his most recent outing in the Ayr Gold Cup, but showed his true colours back on the Knavesmire, getting the better of a protracted duel with stablemate Teruntum Star before repelling the late challenge of Flying Pursuit by three-quarters of a length at 12-1.

Kimberella flew home for third with Teruntum Star fading into fourth.
