A £22,000 purchase at the GoffsUK August Sale at Doncaster, Tight Call made an instant impact on his debut for the yard, making his second start under rules a winning one with a ready success in a bumper at Stratford yesterday under Richard Johnson.

A shade keen through the early stages of the race, he made much of the running and, though headed shortly before the home turn, he rallied gamely to regain the lead a furlong out and galloped on resolutely to the line.

The four year old son of Mahler looks a lovely addition to the yard and we may well try to win another bumper with him under a penalty, but whatever happens he looks sure to go on to better things over hurdles.  Congratulations to his owner Eric Newnham!
