Roudee strikes Silver at Ripon

Tom Dascombe's Roudee came out on top in a typical blanket finish for the William Hill Silver Trophy Handicap at Ripon.

The four-year-old was drawn in stall 20 of the 20 runners but did not stick right to the stands' side rail, with Richard Kingscote weaving a passage through rivals.

As usual, there were plenty in with chances at the furlong-pole, including the favourite Rex Imperator and Mishaal.

But it was Roudee, who just missed the cut for the Great St Wilfrid by 1lb, who held off all-comers to take the £20,000 contest.

Mishaal was beaten a neck, with a short head back to Rex Imperator and Pea Shooter in fourth.

"I enjoy riding him," said Kingscote. "He's just started to look like six furlongs suits him – he found the Dash too quick at Epsom.

"He got plenty of room in the last couple of furlongs and finished strongly. He doesn't have raw speed – he's more of a lengthener – but he's nice to ride.

"I knew I was in front, but it was hard work to get there. He likes give in the ground so it was quick enough."
