RACING: Manton's Baker trains valuable winner for Fergie

Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard: Sir Alex Ferguson Sir Alex Ferguson

MANTON trainer George Baker has provided former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson with one of his most valuable wins as a racehorse owner on the Flat.

Ferguson I'm Fraam Govan finished strongly to win last week's Betdaq - The Sports Betting Exchange Handicap at Kempton Park, worth £60,000.

Baker said: "I am absolutely delighted with I'm Fraam Govan. We ran him in the Cheltenham bumper and went there full of hope but I think he does not quite stay that sort of trip.

"Bringing him to the Flat has worked out fantastically and I think he has shown that today. He is a big horse and got stopped in his run two and a half furlongs out but still managed to get going again and win pretty easily.

""He is an exciting prospect for Sir Alex and it is great fun for us to be training a good one for him."
