PROPHETS PRIDE - GRAHAME LEE 100th Winner   PICTURE: Lesley Gross  

PICTURE: Here's Grand National-winning jockey Graham Lee crossing the line in splendid isolation at Wolverhampton to bring up his century on the Flat since switching codes earlier this year.

The jockey, who partnered Amberleigh House to Aintree glory in 2004, announced he was to quit jump racing in favour of riding on the Flat in March.

He captured the biggest victory of his new career aboard Hawkeyethenoo in the highly competitive Stewards' Cup at Glorious Goodwood in August.

After riding Prophets Pride to a two-and-a-half length win on Tuesday, Lee said: "I was lucky enough to ride a couple of centuries over jumps, but getting this 100 up in such a comparative short space of time is very pleasing as I am
making a go of it in a second career and not many get that chance."

Lee is available at 8-1 with bet365 and BetVictor for next year's Flat jockeys' championship.
