TIMMY Hillman signed for the top lot at the opening session of the Goffs UK January Sale in Doncaster on Tuesday when paying £55,000 for a Blue Bresil yearling colt.

The sale also offered 38 National Hunt mares which were topped by the six-time winner Rattlin, who was sold in foal to Blue Bresil to the bid of Brendan Bashford for £25,000.
