Ben Rumson brings more success for Ask

The well-backed Ben Rumson (4g Ask-La Protagonista, by Night Shift) scored on the Flat for Ask at Ballinrobe on Monday night. Tim Doyle’s charge suffered interference early on and had to come wide from a long way back to win the 1m 3f event under Conor McGovern, seeing off 13 rivals in the process. Connections feel that Ben Rumson will make a useful jumping prospect.“Conor had not ridden for us before but he is riding well, and it’s all worked out well,” said Doyle’s wife Clare. “Tim will probably find something similar for him on a small, tight track although hurdles should really be his game.”
