NEWMARKET JULY MEETING 2003
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
FIRST DAY, TUESDAY, JULY 8


NO WATERING TONIGHT

The course will not be watered this evening and remains good, good to firm in places.


Clerk of the course Michael Prosser explained that “to a man the jockeys have called it good, fast ground. They were very complimentary about it and the last thing I want to do is to make the track false or loose.


“The forecast is for it to be overcast tonight and misty in the morning, with temperatures rising to 24c (78f) tomorrow afternoon.


“There is a possibility of some low pressure on Thursday, but I shall talk to John Kettley, who always advises us about the forecast, and see what he thinks is going to happen.”


HOT TNT JULY STAKES IN PROSPECT

A top-class renewal of tomorrow’s Group 2 TNT July Stakes looks guaranteed with a Royal Ascot scorer and a Derby day winner among the eight declared runners.


Holborn looked a colt of real potential when leaving a strong field in his wake en route to glory in the Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot.


But the son of Green Desert, trained by Mick Channon, will have his work cut out if he is to defy Park View Love - such a game victor in the Woodcote Stakes at Epsom.


And with Mark Johnston’s two-year-olds so difficult to oppose at the moment, it will take a good one to beat dual winner Park View Love.


Another interesting runner is Byron, who looked a really smart sort when pulling clear to win a decent Newmarket maiden over course and distance last month.

Also Farewell Gift is highly thought of by his handler Richard Hannon and appeared a colt of potential when finishing second to the Aidan O’Brien hotpot Grand Reward at Newbury in May.


The claims of Milk It Mick should not be lightly dismissed, either. He finished third behind Pearl Of Love in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot.


Royal Ascot form will also be well represented in the Group 2 Stan James Falmouth Stakes, with Sandringham Stakes winner Hold To Ransom and Macadamia, who took the Royal Hunt Cup, among the eight runners.


Waldmark will seek to get her campaign back on track after disappointing in the Vodafone Oaks while Walzerkoenig is an intriguing runner from Germany.


Trained by Andreas Suborics, the four-year-old Kingmambo filly won an Italian Group 2 on her seasonal reappearance in Italy. Previously, she had finished a well-beaten sixth to Bright Sky in October’s Group 1 Prix de l’Opera.

The Listed Bahrain Trophy Stakes is the opening race on the card and contains several interesting types, including the Roger Charlton-trained Midas Way. Charlton won the same race with Arrive two years ago, while Strength ‘N Honour, Gold Medallist and Dalaram should go well.


Discreet Brief from the yard of John Dunlop must also be respected. Dunlop has a fine record at this meeting and Discreet Brief was second in an Italian Group 3 last time out.


In the showcase handicap, the £50,000 Bonusprint Stakes, a really strong field of 16 promises a tight contest.Tug Of Love runs for the leading trainer Sir Michael Stoute, who excels in big handicaps as well as Pattern company. Hasanpour also represents Stoute’s Freemason Lodge. Jebel Suaraj is another leading contender, having already won twice this term, while Apex Star has prospects for Henry Cecil.


The Capannelle Novice Stakes usually throws up some useful two-year-olds to follow and Barry Hills may be the trainer to side with this time around. He won this last year with Greek Revival and tomorrow is double-handed with Devil’s Bite and Fokine.


The card is completed with two competitive handicaps - the Laing O’Rourke Handicap (15 runners) over two miles and the NGK Spark Plugs Rated Stakes(13 runners) over the minimum trip.



A LOOK AHEAD TO THURSDAY’S THRILLING DARLEY JULY CUP

The star Australian sprinter, who made history when winning twice in five days at Royal Ascot last month, heads the very strong field of 18 for the Group One Darley July Cup, the premier sprint, over six furlongs on Thursday, the final day of the 2003 July Meeting.


Choisir won the Group Two King’s Stand Stakes on the first day of the Royal Meeting when he beat Acclamation and Oasis Dream, and came out again on the Saturday to make all again the Group One Golden Jubilee Stakes over six furlongs by half a length from hot favourite Airwave, with Zipping and Just James not far behind in fourth and fifth places.


Airwave was in season at the time of the Golden Jubilee, but her trainer Henry Candy does not attribute her defeat to that. She is all set to take Choisir on once more, though this time she will have a different jockey as Dane O’Neill is suspended and Kieren Fallon comes in for the ride.


Acclamation and Oasis Dream will also try conclusions with Choisir again. Acclamation finished very well after a tardy start at Ascot, but he had not been able to match Airwave in the Temple Stakes at Sandown and may be pushed to reverse either piece of form.


Oasis Dream, who won the Group One Shadwell Stud Middle Park Stakes on the Rowley Mile last year, was at one time thought of as a Guineas prospect, but circumstances prevented him from running. He was making his first appearance of the season in the King’s Stand and delighted connections with his display. The extra furlong will be all to his advantage.


Another Royal Ascot winner in the line-up is Membership, who sprang a 20-1 surprise in the Jersey Stakes and whose trainer clearly has no worries about him dropping back in distance.


Twelve months ago Dandy Nicholls saddled first and second in this big sprint when Continent just got the better of stablemate Bahamian Pirate. Those two are in the battle again, though with different jockeys. Darryll Holland, who rode Continent, now partners Just James for the same owner (Edward St. George), and Richard Hughes, who was on Bahamian Pirate, has been claimed by Prince Khalid Abdullah for Oasis Dream.


So Olivier Peslier who rides regularly for St George on visits to England, will be on Continent, and Christophe Soumillon is to ride Bahamian Pirate. Nicholls also runs Captain Rio, the mount of his son Adrian.


Aidan O’Brien is doubly represented with Salt Lake City and Tomahawk, while other contenders who have been in good form of late are Twilight Blues, who landed the Duke of York Stakes in May, and Striking Ambition, who has won his last two starts.


GREAT FIRST DAY CROWD


Today’s crowd came to 10,075, just seven short of 1,000 up on last year’s opening day attendance of 9,082 (2001 - 8,876 and 2000 - 7,388).



Lisa Hancock, Newmarket’s Managing Director, commented: “We are delighted to have such a big first day crowd.


“We have increased prize money by over 50% in just two years and enhanced the race programme.


“This has had a very positive effect on the quality of the fields.”

SPONSOR ANNOUNCES £100,000 STABLE BONUS FOR TOTE AUTUMN DOUBLE AT NEWMARKET

The Tote today announces a huge bonus for a stable which wins both legs of the Tote Autumn Double at Newmarket, namely the Tote Cambridgeshire on October 4 and the Tote Cesarewitch on October 18. The yard which provides the winner of both races will collect £100,000 in addition to the prize money, which will be split £70,000 to the stable staff and £30,000 to the trainer.


Both races now close on the same day, August 20, and the entries and weights will be revealed in early September.


Tote Chairman Peter Jones commented: “We are keen to see the profile of the Tote Autumn Double increase and I’m confident that this significant bonus will add another level of interest to two of the biggest betting handicaps of the year.

“Although it is tough to win one of these races, let alone both of them, the lure of a £100,000 bonus will undoubtedly get the attention of some of the shrewdest trainers around, particularly as a good proportion of that sum goes towards their stable staff.”

Lisa Hancock, Newmarket’s Managing Director added: “The Tote Cambridgeshire and Tote Cesarewitch are two of the real highlights of our Autumn programme and are worth a lot of money in their own right (£130,000 each), but I’m delighted that the Tote is putting up this bonus to give an added focus to these two historic handicaps.”

To win the bonus, the same trainer must win both races and both winning horses must be under that trainer’s care (according to Weatherbys) on September 30, 2003.

The last trainer to win the Tote Cambridgeshire and the Tote Cesarewitch in the same year was Sam Darling in 1925, taking the former with Masked Marvel and the latter with Forseti.



JULY FAIR PROVES SUCCESS

The National Stud July Fair was proving a hit for both exhibitors and show-goers alike on the first of its three days.


A decent-sized crowd were enjoying a variety of action in the parade ring, including a dressage display by a former racehorse, a parade of rare horse breeds and a falconry exhibition.


A host of trade stalls flanked the parade ring with variety again the watchword.


Barry and Beryl Brooks had travelled from near Norwich to attend and were thoroughly enjoying their day.


“It’s an interesting day out - especially if you like horses,” said Mrs Brooks. “It’s definitely worth a visit if you want to know about the treatment of horses and I was particularly interested by the spa bath. There is also a very good selection of clothes for sale.”

Gary and Tony Biddis from South East Falconry Group staged a fascinating display with their hybrid falcons that kept spectators in the parade ring captivated.


“These sort of days are well received and we enjoy doing them. We also did the Countryside Day here at Newmarket in May.” said Gary.


This is the first time the National Stud Fair has been held alongside the July Cup meeting instead of during the December Sales at Tattersalls.

“When initially planning a change of venue and time for the Fair, it was felt reasonable to assume that the weather would be kinder to us in July than during November and December when we held previous events,” said Miles Littlewort, chief executive of the National Stud.


“What the gods have in store for us is anyone’s guess but at least we will have long summer evenings, warmer weather and wonderful racing.”



CAMBRIDGESHIRE ON AGENDA FOR DANCER

Willie Muir is planning a grand return to Newmarket later this year for Gilded Dancer, who took the opening race of the July Cup meeting - the H&K Commissions Bookmakers Handicap Stakes.


The Lambourn trainer confirmed: “The Tote Cambridgeshire (£130,000,October 4, Newmarket) is his long-term aim. And I won’t over-run him because I’ve had problems with him in the past. I will give him three weeks and then see what comes along.”

Muir was thrilled with the progressive five-year-old gelding who has now won his last three races following this thrilling short-head victory over Everest.


He beamed: “This is a good performance. He has been working with Impeller (the head second at Brighton in a seven-furlong handicap on Sunday), so I fancied him strongly. And 20-1, I thought, was wonderful.


“If the ground had been too firm today, he would have been withdrawn. He has got to just get his toe in.”

Muir also outlined how well his string are running at the moment.


“The horses are running well. We had nine runners last year, six were second and two were third. So they are in great form - and long may it last.”

Richard Mullen commented: “Earlier in the season we ran him in a claimer to give him a bit of confidence - he has had his problems- you name it he has had it.


“He finished lame when he won the claimer and had the time before as well but fair play to the boss, he has been patient.


“ The horses were out of sorts early on. He was very highly rated as a three-year-old and then had problems. He has done it well again today.”




PLACED QUOTES RACE ONE
H & K COMMISSIONS BOOKMAKERS HANDICAP

“ANOTHER STRIDE WOULD HAVE DONE”

“Last night at Ripon we were beaten a whisker with Scramble, and here we are again beaten another whisker,” said Brian Ellison after Everest had just been beaten by 20-1 Gilded Dancer in the opening H&K Commissions Bookmakers Handicap.

“He has run a blinder and was in front a stride past the post,” added the trainer. “Very frustrating, but at least he has shown that he is back in form.


“He would have been much happier with a better gallop, too. Once True Night got in front he slowed it all down and that was no good for us.


“He was very disappointing at Epsom last time, but he had no chance from his draw and never got into the race when Passing Glance was able to make his own pace from in front.

“The track there did not suit him, either. He is much better on a course with a long, galloping straight like this.”



WINNING QUOTES RACE TWO
TOTE EXACTA HANDICAP

HOLD THOSE STEWARDS’ CUP BETS

Move It’s price for the Vodafone Stewards’ Cup next month was sharply reduced after his decisive defeat of Baltic King in the Tote Exacta Handicap. He was cut to 12-1 by the Tote, Bet365 and Coral from 20-1, 25-1 and 16-1 respectively and to 14-1 frrom 25-1 by Paddy Power, but his trainer Roger Charlton warned punters to hold their horses.


“I shall have to talk it over with his owner (Martin Myers) who was not here today and we’ll have a think about. I don’t want to stand here and say he will run at Goodwood and then have to change our minds, so I want punters not to back him at the moment,” he said.


“I am lucky enough to have a really good lot of sprinters this year and there are going to be a lot of options for all of them,” he said.


“I think this horse is better over six furlongs rather than five against this level of competition. When he was winning easier races early in the year he could win well enough over five, but at this level six suits him better.


“When he ran over five at Ascot last time he wasn’t brilliantly drawn, but I think I got the orders wrong as well. I told Steve (Drowne, who was on the winner again today), to jump him out and bustle him along, as I thought they would go a good gallop all the way and he would keep going.


“But it didn’t suit him at all. He got altogether too hassled when we tried that and was not enjoying himself, but today he settled well and was always travelling happily. He did the job well.”



Tote Exacta Rated Stakes - Placed quotes

MORRISON, EVANS REACTION


Connections of the runner-up and the third in The Tote Exacta Rated Stakes reported no hard luck stories after finishing behind Move It.


Hugh Morrison, trainer of the second-placed Baltic King, said: “He has run another very honest race but got beaten by a better horse on the day. He’s in the five-furlong race at Ascot (The Hong Kong Jockey Club Sprint July 27) so that will be a possibility.”

David Evans, who trained third-placed The KiddyKid, said: “He ran a great race. He was hanging a bit to the right but he could probably have done with a bit more give in the ground.”

Evans may look abroad for the gelding now, although mentioned there could be a race for him at Ascot on Shergar Cup day.


Chippenham Lodge Stud Cherry Hinton Stakes
Winning Quotes

Darley salutes Attraction

Jockey Kevin Darley piled the praise on Attraction after she romped to a stunning five-length victory in the Group 2 Chippenham Lodge Cherry Hinton Stakes.


He said: “I would say she is as good a filly as I’ve sat on. Today I’ve learnt a lot more about her in that when she is in behind, she relaxes. She’s not all speed. She can switch off and settle and find the speed where it matters.


“The further she went, the better she was. I never touched her with the whip. She’s a pretty good filly.”

Successful trainer Mark Johnston hailed Attraction, who also won the Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot, “the best two-year-old I’ve ever trained.”

He added: “We’ve obviously got lots of options now because the six furlongs comes into it. We were looking at the Nunthorpe and the Robert Papin because we were thinking of five furlongs. We wanted Group 1 and there weren’t any other alternatives. Now there’s numerous alternatives.


“She will be entered in the Lowther and the Nunthorpe but we will be looking beyond that.”

Assessing Attraction’s performance, Johnston said: “Plan A was that she would probably ping out in front and just settle in the lead. Plan B was that somebody would try and take her on and would be going too fast. We never imagined that she would be boxed in at the back.


“Kevin said somebody jumped across and that shot them out and he ended up at the back. Then there was a wall of horses in front. She ran too free for a bit but then she just dropped in completely and Kevin said when the gap opened he couldn’t believe it. We can see, she’s a machine, a bit of a freak.”

The Efisio filly, who was winning for the fifth straight time, earned a 12-1 quote with Ladbrokes for next year’s Sagitta1000 Guineas after her latest triumph. Asked whether there was any reason why she shouldn’t make a decent three-year-old, Johnston replied: “None whatsoever.”




MORE CHIPPENHAM LODGE CHERRY HINTON STAKES QUOTES

Attraction, hot favourite for the Chippenham Lodge Cherry Hinton Stakes, was the impressive winner of the historic Group Two contest at Newmarket today

The two-year-old Efisio filly went clear in the last furlong to win by five lengths after suffering some early trouble in running and is now unbeaten in five outings.


Her trainer Mark Johnston described her as “the best two-year-old I’ve ever trained.” and added: “She moves brilliantly when she is asked to go. She was locked up and pulling for a bit which was the last thing we wanted.


“She dropped back a length and I thought maybe she has already shot her bolt but Kevin (Darley - the winning jockey) said it was really she switched off when there was nowhere to go.


“He said that as soon as the gap opened he couldn’t believe it - she went from being three lengths down to five lengths up.


“Kevin said it was Plan C what actually happened. We didn’t imagine there would be a wall of horses in front of her. It is great - I could never have imagined that she would win that way.”



PLACED QUOTES RACE THREE
CHIPPENHAM LODGE STUD CHERRY HINTON STAKES

“YOU’VE GOT TO BE IN”

“I never thought she would beat the winner, but you’ve got to be in in case something strange happens” said David Loder after Pearl Grey had been runner-up, albeit at five lengths, to odds-on Attraction in the Chippenham Lodge Stud Cherry Hinton Stakes.


“She is only a little pony and she has run a blinder,” Loder went on. “If someone had told me three weeks ago that she was going to win a Listed race and be second in the Cherry Hinton I would have laughed my head off.


“She has finished lame, but you can’t tell how bad it may be`when they are all hot after a race. The vet is going to look at her now.


“She struck into herself when she won her Listed race, so she may well have done the same again this time, although there is no cut on her leg.”

Tim Easterby was very pleased with the effort by third-placed Birthday Suit. “She has run very well, though maybe she was a bit free,” he said.


“She hung out to her right, which she did a bit when she won at York, so maybe she is still a bit green.”


WINNING QUOTES RACE FOUR
PRINCESS OF WALES’S UAE EQUESTRIAN AND RACING FEDERATION STAKES

MILLENARY DOES IT AGAIN

Millenary repeated his success of 12 months ago when, wearing blinkers from the first time, he came from last to first to win the Princess of Wales’s Stakes by a length and a half from Bandari.


And now it is on the cards that he will have a crack at the King George V1 and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes at Ascot on Saturday fortnight -- as long as the ground is suitable for him.


“This (good) ground was fine for him today, but he would really like some proper rain if he is going to run at Ascot,” said his trainer John Dunlop.


“It will be tough for him, and though it is hard to tell how good this year’s three-year-olds are he will have to take them on. But we would go there with nothing to lose and it would be nice for him to take his chance.


“He is a grand old horse and owes us nothing, but he has always been a bit inclined to lean in his races, which is why we put the blinkers on him for the first time today.


“He has been doing it for a long time up to a point, both at home and on the course, and then he did it again in France last time when he finished first but had leaned on the second horse and was relegated.


“So we decided that maybe blinkers would be a help to him, and he certainly kept very straight after he had taken up the running.


“Pat (Eddery) rode a lovely race on him and he seems to enjoy being at Newmarket as he won the Jockey Club Stakes on the other course two years ago. He’s now won three Group races here.”

Placed Quotes

Johnston content with Bandari


Mark Johnston was pleased to see Bandari show better form when finishing second to Millenary.


The Alhaarth colt has been something of a let-down before today but hinted that he may be on the way back.


Johnston said: “I’m a lot happier with that. Things have been very frustrating up until now. The horse was working very well at home but perhaps we had him under-done a bit. Certainly first time out when Willie Supple rode him here on the other course, he just blew up.


“We were trying to keep condition on the horse but maybe I’ve overdone that. Richard Hills said that today he was not so fresh and more settled throughout.”

As for the future, Johnson said:”Sheik Hamdan very much likes to make the decisions.

“He doesn’t run many horses abroad but we are looking at a Group 1 in Dusseldorf at the end of the month and a Group 1 in Munich a few days later. One’s a mile and a quarter and one’s a mile and a half, so we will be looking at those.”

Sir Michael Stoute, trainer of the third-placed Gamut, said: “I would say that was his best run so far. He’s a good, honest, tough colt - he’s improving.”


Strutt & Parker Maiden Stakes
Quotes

DOUBLE DELIGHT FOR CHARLTON

Josephus completed a 28.25/1 double for Beckhampton trainer Roger Charlton when he scored in the Strutt & Parker Maiden Stakes over seven furlongs.


The King of Kings colt won by half a length in the same colours of the Mountgrange Stud that Move It had worn when triumphing in the Tote Exacta Rated Stakes earlier in the afternoon.


Charlton said: “He ran very well first time (to finish fourth at Newbury last month). He was the most backward horse that ran at Newbury that day and all the experts said he would improve more than anything else. And he has improved and I’m not surprised he’s won today.


“He’s a nice horse and we’ll look after him.”

Charlton mentioned that he won’t be rushing Josephus who will likely run a couple more times this season, probably in the autumn.


This was Charlton’s 29th winner of the year.


Paul Cole was very happy with the debut second of Secretary General.


He said: “He’s a nice colt, for a cheapie (the horse cost 70,000 euros as a yearling) and he would have gone very close had he not lost his place a bit. I haven’t wound him up yet.”

WINNING QUOTES RACE SIX
racingpost.co.uk FILLIES’ HANDICAP


DROWNE TREBLES UP

Steve Drowne completed a 613-1 treble when 20-1 Devant held off the powerful late challenge of Zietory to take the fillies’ handicap by a short head with the others six lengths and more behind.


“She is a really brave filly,” enthused her trainer Michael Jarvis. “Steve said that when the other filly came at her she just put her head down and really did want to win.


“I have taken Philip Robinson’s advice about her, as at one time I entered her in a mile and a quarter race, but he asked me what I had done that for and told me she wanted seven furlongs or a mile on a straight course.


“But even then I told people that I thought she had no more than a place chance -- at 20-1 !”

Devant is owned and bred by a team from New Zealand who call themselves the Devant Partnership, and whose interests are looked after by agent Joss Collins.


“She is the first horse they have bred to Northern Hemisphere time; they produced her with the specific intention of bringing her to race in England,” said Collins.


“They also raced her dam, Frenetic, who was a good filly but had her share of temperament. She was favourite for the New Zealand Oaks, but refused to go into her stall.”

TASTY TREBLE FOR DROWNE

Jockey Steve Drowne was the star turn on the opening day of the July Cup meeting, riding a dazzling 613-1 treble.


Drowne kicked off with an 11-2 success on Move It before following up with a 7-2 win on Josephus. The ever-amicable rider completed his hat-trick with a brave 20-1 triumph on Devant.

Drowne said: “I’m having an excellent day. It’s hard to ride one winner, let alone three. The July Meeting has started great for me.


“Things are going nicely touch wood - hopefully it will carry on.”




The Hyperion Court Maiden Stakes
Winning Quotes

DUNLOP BAGS DOUBLE

John Dunlop nailed down a 41-1 double, thanks to Tanaghum’s win in the final race of the day.


The Darshaan filly out of former Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Mehthaaf overcame Reyadi in the closing strides to run out a debut winner.


Dunlop, who earlier scored with Millenary in the Group 2 Princess Of Wales Stakes, said: “She’s a beautifully bred filly.

“She’s fragile and a little bit temperamental but she’s been good today, perfect. The good gallop suited her.


“We will see what she goes on to but she’s got a little bit of class and is a very pretty filly.”



BETTING NEWS

It has been a fairly quiet morning in the offices, but punters have still taken some views and there has been a serious attack in the opening H&K Commissions Bookmakers Handicap (1.45) on the Yorkshire-trained What-A-Dancer, who has been cut almost across the board from 16-1 to 12-1 by Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, Hills and Coral. In the same race Everest has been trimmed to 10-1 from 12-1 by Ladbrokes and to the same price from 14-1 by Bet365, who have also had money for Bond Diamond from 12-1 to 10-1.


Top weight Dazzling Bay has been in cracking form of late and will bid for his fourth win in a row in the Tote Exacta Handicap (2.15). Plenty of people expect him to make it with Bet365 having cut him from 11-4 to 9-4 and Coral reporting him very solid at 5-2. Victor Chandlers have had support for Move It, who has come in from 13-2 to 11-2.


Although Attraction looks very hard to beat in the Chippenham Lodge Stud Cherry Hinton Stakes (2.50) there has been money for a couple of her rivals. Birthday Suit, who is also unbeaten though in two starts as opposed to the favourite’s four, has been the subject of each way support with Powers from 12-1 to 9-1. She has been similarly cut by Ladbrokes, who have also halved the price of outsider Rosehearty from 40-1 to 20-1.


Bollin Eric has been in demand with Coral for the Princess of Wales’s UAE Equestrian and Racing Federation Stakes (3.25) and is a solid 9-4 chance, while Hills and Chandlers report money for Bandari, who has come in from 17-2 to 7-1 and from 9-1 to 15-2 respectively.


Aunt Rita has proved a lively outsider in the racingpost.co.uk Fillies’ Handicap and has been trimmed from 33-1 to 25-1 by Powers and from the same price to 20-1 by Ladbrokes, while at the top end of the market Ladbrokes have trimmed Zietory by half a point from 7-2.



GOING NEWS AT 10 AM



The going for the first day of the July meeting is


GOOD, GOOD TO FIRM IN PLACES.



“Almost all the course is spot on good ground,” said clerk of the course Michael Prosser. “The only good to firm places are on the Beacon course back from the mile and a half start to the two mile mark.


“We put four millimetres of water on the course from the mile to the mile and a half starts yesterday as that was then the fastest part of the track, but even where there are good to firm patches it is very much on the good side of good to firm.


“We shall see how the day goes before deciding about putting on any more water after racing this evening.”



EGAN’S ARAB IAN SUCCESS

Jockey John Egan made his first ride in an Arab race a winning one, landing The President of the UAE International Challenge Derby.


The Irishman only came in for the ride on Djourdan at the 11th hour after the horse’s planned rider was unable to make the race.


“He gave me a lovely ride,”said Egan after pipping Eau Royal and jockey Richard Hills.


Djourdan’s success came in the first Group 1 Arabian race in Britain this year.
