Jamie Coward has taken first place in this afternoons Junior Classic TT race.

After having to settle for three 2nd place finishes previously he secures his place on top of the podium with Michael Rutter finishing second and third position going to Dominic Herbertson.

Coward was able to capitalise on mid-race drama when Lee Johnston, who’d been leading the contest, was forced to retire at the Gooseneck on lap two.

Coming up later is the Superbike Classic TT race which is due to get underway at 5.15pm and will follow the Classic TT Lap of Honour.
