HARRIS JOY AS DORA LANDS CHERRY HINTON
Peter Harris again tasted success on Newmarket's July course when his Dora Carrington landed the thehorsesmouth.co.uk Cherry Hinton Stakes.
The Sri Pekan filly, a half-sister to Harris' Primo Valentino, came with a late run and gamely outstayed Enthused in the closing stages with Lady Lahar back in third.
Afterwards Harris commented:"I thought she was good enough, although she doesn't really show that much at home. We don't really test her at home, so I was hopeful that she would show some improvement. We will now see how she goes and we will aim her at the top races for juvenile fillies."
LITTLE ROCK BACK TO WINNING WAYS
Little Rock returned to form today when landing the Princess of Wales's Stakes at Newmarket.
A thrilling finish saw little rock just prevail over the gallant Yavana's Pace, while the favourite Sea Wave disappointed.
Afterwards trainer Sir Michael Stoute commented: "He's quite a robust colt and has matured physically since last season." Stoute went on to report that stable star King's Best was making a satisfactory recovery and that Eclipse second Kalanisi would probably be aimed at either the Sussex Stakes or the Juddmonte International at York.
CHANNEL 4 WITHDRAW SUPER 12 OFFER
Channel 4 and NTL subsidiary Premium TV have withdrawn their £250m bid for exclusive rights to televise races from the group of racecourses known as the "Super 12."
David Brook, Director of Strategy at Channel 4 stated: "Unfortunately, the factionalism that seems endemic in some parts of the industry has made it impossible to secure the necessary involvement of the UK's remaining 47 courses and Channel 4 and Premium TV have lost confidence in the process set in place to determine the allocation of their rights. Reluctantly, therefore, we have decided to withdraw our bid and halt current negotiations.
Brook went on to add: "Although this deal is dead, if racing can regroup and come back to us with a united and coherent position then channel 4 and Premium TV would still hope to be involved in a future deal for television and online horseracing rights."

TEDBURROW ATTEMPTS FOURTH CHESTER SUCCESS
Tedburrow will attempt to win the Listed Jani City Wall Stakes at Chester, having won the race in 1997, 1998 and 1999.
The eight-year old returned to form last time out at Newcastle and trainer Eric Alston is expecting another bold show on Saturday. Alston stated: "He is an intended runner and he's really well - he seems in great order. Willie Supple will ride him again if he is available but it depends if he's claimed elsewhere by Sheikh Hamdan."
