REDDITCH trainer Ian Williams dominated Saturday's racing as Saunter and London Prize bagged big-race victories at Doncaster and Wincanton.

Just moments after Williams had seen London Prize win the Grade Two Elite Hurdle at Wincanton, Saunter was delivered with a perfectly-timed run by Jim Crowley to lift the Betfred November Handicap on Town Moor.

The final big event of the turf season was expected to star Royal Line and although the favourite made a bold bid for home, he dropped away as Saunter (6-1) made his move.

Chelsea Lad tried to go with him but had to settle for second, with Eddystone Rock third and Storm King a game fourth.

Williams said: "It's not a bad 20 minutes to have in any training career. It's lovely to do it on the flat and over jumps.

"I think he's beaten quite a quality field. I thought he had a lot to do two furlongs out, but Jim has given him a great ride.

"Michael Watts (owner) has been extremely supportive of me and has always given me a chance with decent horses. They are famous colours, so it's fantastic.

"This fellow was sent to us two months ago."

Meanwhile, London Prize, second in the Cesarewitch on his previous outing, galloped all the way to the line to take the Grade Two prize at Wincanton by three lengths from Lough Derg Spirit.

He does now have the option of making a swift return to action in the Greatwood Hurdle at Cheltenham on Sunday but Williams said he was leaning towards Newbury in December for his next possible outing.
