CHAMPAGNE LANSON JULY FESTIVAL, NEWMARKET
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
ABU DHABI DAY, WEDNESDAY, 7TH JULY
GROUND UPDATE - AFTER RACING WEDNESDAY
Newmarket Clerk of the Course Michael Prosser confirmed that, after a warm and dry opening day of the Champagne Lanson July Festival, the course would be watered.
“We plan to water everything. There is supposed to be the chance of a shower this evening, which might bring a millimetre or two, but even if that happens we will still be watering.
“We’ll have two booms going, one up the Beacon course and one up the home straight and we’re putting on about five millimetres on the whole course.
“We had quite a drying breeze today - we would expect it to be the breeziest of the three days - but it will get warmer, with the temperature predicted to be 24 degrees tomorrow, and 27 or 28 degrees on Friday, when it will be muggy as well.
“The main thing is those days are expected to be dry.
“We may not water after racing tomorrow. I’m slightly reticent about watering after two days racing, it’s not a particularly wide strip of ground, just 22 metres at the five-furlong pole, and therefore we wouldn’t want to be watering when the track’s had plenty of use,” said Prosser.
CROWD UP 14 PER CENT
Today’s crowd came to 6,715, a significant rise on the same day 12 months ago, to leave Stephen Wallis, Managing Director of Newmarket Racecourses, more than satisfied.
He said: “Today’s attendance is 14 per cent up on the opening day last year and that is very encouraging for us.
“Our advance sales for the three days have been positive, but it is very pleasing to see that backed up by today’s crowd increase.
“We are now really looking forward to tomorrow’s Champagne Lanson Ladies Day for which there are only around 100 tickets remaining for the Premier Enclosure, although there is still plenty of availability in the Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure.”

Race 1: The Champagne Lanson EBF Fillies’ Handicap Stakes
PERFECT START, PERFECT FINISH
Trainer Roger Charlton had a perfect start and a perfect finish to the Champagne Lanson July Festival when his only runner at the Festival, Folly Bridge, a 17/2 shot, won the Champagne Lanson E.B.F. Fillies’ Handicap.
Folly Bridge stayed on stoutly to beat the Andrew Balding-trained Strictly Dancing by a neck, to record her third victory. “It looked like she didn’t get seven furlongs last year, but it really suited her today,” said Charlton.
“They didn’t go very fast and quickened from the front, and it looked she wasn’t really going to get there, but she stayed on very well. She probably had a good draw , if you get a run,” added the trainer.
The trainer was not surprised by his filly’s success. “She ran very well at Nottingham and not so well at Newmarket last time, when the ground was very loose,” he said.
The filly was bred locally at the National Stud - “I trained the mother and the father” - said trainer Roger Charlton.
There are no definite plans for the filly’s future. “I’ve no idea where she goes. She’s rated 87 now and she’ll go up a few pounds. I’ll have to see if there’s a Listed handicap somewhere, but I’m not sure there is one,” said Charlton.
Steve Drowne, the winning rider, added: “The last time I rode her was as a two-year-old over seven furlongs and I thought that she got the trip that day - there seemed to be doubts but I thought that she did.
“She’s a game filly. They didn’t go much of a gallop and I thought that we had it very easy - any horse that was in the van was in the right position.
“Roger has done much the same as he ever has done. The horses are fit and healthy and everything is right. Touch wood, long may it continue.”

STRICTLY DANCING THE RIGHT WAY
Trainer Andrew Balding was very happy with the performance of Strictly Dancing, the neck runner-up in the opening race of the 2010 Champagne Lanson July Festival - the £40,000 Champagne Lanson EBF Fillies’ Handicap.
The three-year-old Danehill Dancer filly was prominent throughout the seven-furlong contest and having seen off the challenge of third-placed Alice Alleyne, whose rider Ryan Moore put up 3lb overweight, was overhauled close to the line by Folly Bridge.
Andrew Balding said: “I was very happy with her performance today.
“She stayed really well today and looks as if she may even get a bit further. There are no definite plans as to where we go next with her.
“She really battled today and is a filly going the right way.”
JOCKEYS ASSESS GROUND IN FIRST RACE
Steve Drowne, who partnered the winner Folly Bridge, said: “It is nice, fast ground.”
Jimmy Fortune, rider of the neck second Strictly Dancing, remarked: “Fast ground.”
Ryan Moore, jockey of the third Alice Alleyne who put up 3 lb overweight, commented: “It is fast ground but safe.”
William Buick, rider of the fourth Sweet Clementine, said: “It is quick out there.”
Alan Munro, on the fifth Fly Silca Fly, declared: “It is good to firm going but safe.”
Richard Hughes, who rode 11th Chica Whopa, remarked: “Beautiful good to firm going with a great cover of grass.”
Richard Kingscote, partner of 10th Don’t Tell Mary, said: “Firm ground.”
Kieren Fallon, up on 13th Seeking Dubai, said: “Beautiful, good, fast ground.”

FIREBACK GOES ONE BETTER FOR BALDING TEAM
After Strictly Dancing was narrowly denied a victory in the opener, the Andrew Balding stable went one better in the second race of the afternoon, the £100,000 totesport.com Heritage Handicap, when Fireback scored a three-quarter length victory.
Balding revealed that the decision to come to Newmarket, rather than heading to Ascot on Saturday for a seven-furlong race, had been influenced by the excellent prize money on offer.
The trainer said of the successful 12/1 shot: “The stable went through a bit of a quiet patch earlier this season, but the horses ran well at Royal Ascot and we are now back in form. It is a great tribute to the team at home.
“I discussed with Nick Robinson of Kennet Valley Thoroughbreds (owners) about whether we came here or went over seven furlongs at Ascot on Saturday. We came to the decision that if he got in the race, then we would come here as the prize money for this race was so good. I think a strongly-run six furlongs is right up his street.
“He is still slightly unfurnished, and should hopefully improve next year.
“It is also great for his daddy, Firebreak. We also trained Firebreak and he was owned by Kennet Valley. He has done well from his first crop as he also his Hearts Of Fire.
“This horse wasn’t expensive (15,000 guineas) but is pretty good.”
David Probert:, the successful rider, said: “He ran well in the Britannia Handicap last time - he was only beaten five lengths - but he was better here. We thought that the six furlongs would be a bit too sharp but he has travelled very well and finished his race well.
“He’s got plenty of speed and the ground wasn’t an issue for him - he has picked them off well.”

BAGAMOYO BACK ON TRACK
HANNON HAPPY (BUT ISN’T HE ALWAYS)
Bagamoyo put the disappointment of his previous run behind him when he finished strongly in the totesport.com Heritage Handicap to finish just three quarters of a length behind the winner, the Andrew-Balding trained Fireback.
“We are absolutely delighted. We were a touch disappointed with his run at Newmarket when he was seventh [behind Swilly Ferry in the Coral.co.uk Sprint Handicap. We always knew he was a bit better than that. This was more like it,” said Charlie Fellows, assistant to trainer James Fanshawe.
“We may look to the Stewards’ Cup now, or we may go up to seven furlongs. The jockey thought he would stay seven furlongs. We’ll have to go back and see how he is after that. He’s back on track though,” he added.
Trainer Richard Hannon pronounced himself very pleased with the performance of Gene Autry in third place.
“He’s run a super race, Jimmy [Fortune] gave him a super ride. I just felt he lost a little bit going into the dip, but when he got the rising ground he ran on really well. Another 100 yards and he would nearly have got the winner,” said the trainer.
On his season so far, Hannon said: “I’ve been at it that long now; you have up days and down days. You don’t get carried away by the up days, and you don’t get too miserable by the down days.”
BANS FOR BUICK AND AHERN
After the first race, the Champagne Lanson EBF Fillies’ Handicap, the stewards found that William Buick, rider of the fourth Sweet Clementine, had interfered with Seeking Dubai a furlong and a half out by moving into a gap and causing interference. He was found guilty of careless riding and was suspended for three days - Wednesday to Friday, July 21-23 inclusive.
In race two, the totesport.com Heritage Handicap, Eddie Ahern on the second Bagamoyo, was found to have used his whip in the wrong place by the stewards and they suspended him for one day - Wednesday, July 21.
MEMORY PLEASES HUGHES
Richard Hughes, after winning the Group Two Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes on Memory, said: “That was really good and the nice thing about it was that Memory was off the bit halfway down when the others were travelling really well. It’s a really good sign because if she comes good, then it is a proper race.
“I was happy to get cover and a little gap came but I am so afraid of getting bans these days - nine times out of 10 I would have gone in there but I just had to sit it out and go round.
“She’s very good, there is no doubt about that. She stays and she is behaving better now - she jumped out and didn’t do any of her antics.”
Race 3: The Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes - Winner Quotes
Memory, with a classic burst of speed, went from first to last in the space of half-a-furlong for an emphatic victory in the Group Two Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes. The 5/4 favourite, drifting from odds-on earlier in the day, had connections clearly thrilled by the performance, and has established her place at the forefront of the market for next year’s 1000 Guineas at Newmarket.
“She’s got gears, there’s no doubt about it. She’s obviously a very, very good filly. She wags her old tail and you sometimes wonder when you come to the races if she’s going to continue her successes. Obviously, she loves it. To get out of the little bit of trouble she got into today, and just finish like she did, she’s a high-class filly,” said trainer Richard Hannon, whose season just keeps getting better.
“I think Richard [Hughes] went round them because he didn’t want to go through them. He knew what he was holding on to. You never go into races thinking you’re going do it easily. There were a lot of good fillies here and you just hope for the best. Is she a Guineas filly? Yes, she’ll have no trouble staying - in my book. The Moyglare is the next one,” added the trainer.
The filly is owned by a Highclere Syndicate, 20 members investing £13,000. Harry Herbert, managing director of Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, echoed the sentiments of his owners, and was jubilant.
“The Moyglare [at the Curragh] must be the next move now; she’s done that so impressively. I was very worried during the race. I thought it was going to be the classic pinned-on-the-rail job. But Hughesie said that she’s a filly that almost enjoys that trouble. She’s class and he knew there was a lot of gas left in the tank and he’s ridden her very confidently,” said Herbert.
“Richard said that the filly can do seven and will go on improving. Certainly looking at her make and shape and pedigree-wise you’d certainly hope so,” added Herbert.
The filly, who is now as short as 5/1 favourite with Skybet for next year’s 1000 Guineas at Newmarket, has particularly impressed Herbert in her work. “Normally when you go and see horses work and they are absolutely useless, they work like diseased goats,” said Herbert.
“But I saw this filly work when the Queen was watching as well and the idea was that one of the Queen’s fillies and A.N.Other and Memory would come up together, with Memory in the middle. But she was given a little squeeze and went four lengths clear and Richard Hannon said, “Well, I reckon that’s the Albany in the bag,” he added.

NO EXCUSES FROM CHANNON AND PRESCOTT
Following the stunning last to first victory of Memory in the £70,000 Group Two Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes, the trainers of the runner-up and third offered no excuses.
Mick Channon, who saddled the three-quarter length runner-up Soraaya, said: “That was a perfect run from her.
“We were just beaten by a better filly on the day, simple as that.
“We will now look at the Lowther Stakes at York.”
A further half-length back in third was Hooray and her trainer Sir Mark Prescott was also very satisfied.
He said: “When she ran at Royal Ascot, I just thought that we were drawn on the wrong side and that meant we had to commit earlier than we would have liked as the other side was in front.
“I thought she would run better today.
“The winner has come and won it well. There are no excuses. We were probably unsuited by the slow early pace, but as I say, I don’t offer that as an excuse.
“She wouldn’t go to the Lowther. If anything, we would be looking at stepping her up in trip next time.”

CHANNON VINDICATED WITH GROUP ONE SUCCESS FOR MUSIC SHOW
After a string of unfortunate efforts which has seen Music Show finish sixth in the StanJames.com 1000 Guineas, third in the Irish 1,000 Guineas and fourth in the Coronation Stakes, the Noverre filly finally gained a deserved Group One victory when taking the £185,000 Etihad Airways Falmouth Stakes in the colours of Jaber Abdullah.
The Mick Channon-trained filly, returned at 13/2, was partnered by Richard Hughes, who delivered a perfectly-timed challenge down the outside to take up running inside the final furlong and score by two lengths from Spacious.
“At last!” was Channon’s initial reaction.
He continued: “She deserved it. Today was the best fillies’ race of the year and she has won it well.
“I was angry after her run at Royal Ascot. I am not blaming anyone, but she just never got a run that day. She was 15 lengths behind at one stage but was only beaten four lengths in the end.
“In the Irish Guineas, she was wide all the way through the race and always had daylight. Today everything went to plan as we were able to get some cover and take our time. Candy Morris, Ryan Moore’s aunt, rides her in her work and we knew she was in good form. To get some cover and come from behind is the best way to ride her.
“Today we have beaten the winner of the English and French Guineas and the Coronation Stakes winner - we have beaten everything that has beaten her before. She has to be the best three-year-old filly in the country. I have never had any doubts about her. It is just annoying when you know that you have a good horse which gets beaten. You press people wrote her off, trying to tell me she was only a Group Two filly.
“It will be up to Jaber where she goes next, but targets for her could include the Matron Stakes and Prix Rothschild. We could take on Goldikova - she’s the top dog but let’s have a go. That’s what racing is about.”
Richard Hughes, completing a 15.8/1 double following his previous success on Memory in the Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes, added: “The only difference between this race and the last one was that they went nice and fast so I knew that they were going to stop. She has done it very well.
“She has had no luck in running in her races - I have been watching her - and she went quite wide at Ascot from a bad draw but she was very good today.
“I followed Frankie’s horse (Rainfall) and she travelled really well.
“Mick said she had a huge chance today, she just needs some cover and to come late.
“When Frankie’s filly started to get tired, I thought it would be safer to just come round her.
“She was a fair way behind at one point, but she travelled so well I wasn’t worried.”

Music Show visited Bath for her first two career starts, winning a six-furlong maiden on August 6 last year, and then adding a novice stakes over the same distance on August 22. She then competed in the Group Three Firth Of Clyde Stakes at Ayr on September 19, but could only manage 10th behind Distinctive. The Noverre filly stepped up to seven furlongs for her final two-year-old start in the Group Two Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket on October 17. She ran on strongly under Kieren Fallon to take the lead close home, defeating Atasari by a neck. Music Show scored over the same course and distance on her three-year-old bow when quickening well to take the Group Three Leslie Harrison Memorial Nell Gwyn Stakes by half a length from Blue Maiden. She returned to the Rowley Mile on May 2 and finished sixth in the StanJames.com 1000 Guineas, having raced on the far side, finishing ahead of that group, whereas the stands’ side dominated. She then went to the Curragh for the Etihad Airways Irish 1,000 Guineas on May 23 and finished a close third, going down by a head and a neck. Her latest appearance came in the Coronation Stakes, also over a mile, at Royal Ascot on June 18 when she stayed on to be fourth to Lillie Langtry. She showed a decisive turn of foot today to win well. Music Show was a 16,000 euros purchase as a two-year-old from Goresbridge Flat Breeze Up Sale in May, 2009.

Channon was born in Orcheston, Wiltshire, on November 28, 1948, and was a top-class footballer who played for England on 46 occasions and also captained the team during a career which took him from Southampton to Manchester City, Portsmouth and Norwich and saw him score more than 300 goals. He was captain of the Southampton team that won the FA Cup in 1976. His interest in racing was already well established and he shared horses, trained by Bill Wightman and John Baker, with Kevin Keegan. Man On The Run and Cathy Jane were among their early winners. Channon took up racing as a profession when, as he put it, "football gave me up", and he worked to learn the ropes with John Baker and Ken Cunningham-Brown. By this stage he had already built up his stud and produced winners like the useful handicap hurdler Jamesmead and staying chaser Ghofar, who won the Hennessy Gold Cup. He took out a licence in 1990 and was first based in Lambourn before buying West Ilsley stables from the Queen where Dick Hern, Jack Colling and Lord Huntingdon had trained before him. He moved into that yard at the beginning of 2001 and now has a team of 169 listed in the 2010 Horses In Training annual. He gained his first winners on the same day when Golden Scissors was successful on the Flat at Beverley and Wessex Warrior over hurdles at Wincanton on March 30, 1990, and his first important successes came the following year when You Know The Rules won the Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club Stakes at Sandown and Affair Of State took the Tattersalls Breeders Stakes. Since then the winners have flowed thick and fast, with plenty of them at the top level. Piccolo won the Group One Nunthorpe at York and the King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot, Seazun and Queen's Logic took the Group One Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket, Bint Allayl the Queen Mary (Royal Ascot) and Lowther (York), Miletrian the Ribblesdale (Royal Ascot), Tobougg in 2000 included the Dewhurst (Newmarket) and the Prix de la Salamandre in France among his successes, while Zafeen landed the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2004. In 2005, Flashy Wings won both the Queen Mary Stakes and Lowther Stakes, and he also took the Prix Morny at Deauville with Silca's Sister. Youmzain gained a deserved Group One success in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud in 2008 and has been runner-up in the last three runnings of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, while another high-class flagbearer for the stable was Majestic Roi, winner of the 2007 Sun Chariot Stakes. The 2009 season brought global success with Eva’s Request winning in Italy and Turkey, Halicarnassus also landing a Turkish Group Two and Lahaleeb taking the Grade One EP Taylor Stakes in Canada. This year his stable star Youmzain narrowly failed to win a Group One at Saint-Cloud in France recently. Channon was badly injured in a car crash in August, 2008, in which bloodstock agent Tim Corby, a close friend of the trainer, was killed.

Richard Hughes was born in Ireland on January 11, 1973, and served his apprenticeship with his father Dessie, a former top-class National Hunt rider who trains in Co Kildare and won the 2004 and 2005 Champion Hurdles at Cheltenham with Hardy Eustace. He had his first ride at Naas on March 19, 1988, when finishing 10th of 15 and enjoyed his first success on Viking Melody at Roscommon that August. He came over to Britain in 1994. He was appointed as Prince Khalid Abdulla’s retained jockey in 2001 but that association came to an end at the end of 2007. He rides regularly for Richard Hannon, to whose daughter Lizzie he is married. The 5ft 9in Hughes has, like his father, also ridden winners over jumps but concentrates on the Flat. His biggest successes include the 2004 French 2,000 Guineas on American Post, the 2003 French Oaks on Nebraska Tornado, the 1996 Italian Derby on Bahamian Knight, the 1996 Group One Premio Vittorio di Capua on Mistle Cat, the 2001 Group One Prix d’Ispahan on Observatory and the 2002 Group One French 1,000 Guineas on Zenda. Hughes had a long-awaited first British Group One success when Oasis Dream landed the 2003 Darley July Cup and he went on to land the Group One Nunthorpe Stakes on the same horse. Indian Ink gave him a Group One success at Royal Ascot when taking the 2007 Coronation Stakes. He has had a terrific season this year, with Group One wins on Paco Boy, Canford Cliffs and Dick Turpin.

SECOND & THIRD HAPPY
The second home Spacious is most consistent and improved a place from her third in this race last year. The five-year-old Nayef mare, owned by Cheveley Park Stud and trained by James Fanshawe in Newmarket, led under Kieren Fallon until headed by the winner Music Show inside the final furlong and went down by two lengths.
Fanshawe said: “She ran very well and I am not at all frustrated. Kieren gave her a great ride - there were no excuses - she ran a very good race. She has finished in front of some very good fillies today.
“It is great to have her in the yard. I will probably give her break now and have a look at going to the Matron Stakes at the beginning of September (Group One, Leopardstown, September 4, 1m).”
The third was Mark Johnston-trained three-year-old Oasis Dream filly Rainfall, partnered by Frankie Dettori who said: “She tried really hard and I cannot say anything bad about her - it was a good effort.”
Johnston added: “You could not have predicted the result. We said we were shooting slightly in the dark as it was a big jump up in class for her. But she deserved to run in a Group One and is clearly a Group One filly. Her next run will be at Group One level too. It could be the Prix d’Astarte (now the Prix Rothschild at Deauville on August 1 - Group One 1m), depending on how she comes out of this race.”
Special Duty finished a disappointing seventh. Her rider Tom Queally said: “She ran too bad to be true. She never travelled. She ran OK until half-way and then found nothing. I just took my foot off the accelerator just in case there was something amiss. Nothing jumps out as a problem - it was just too bad to be true.”
Race 5: The European Breeders’ Fund Maiden Stakes - Winner Quotes
NATIVE KHAN DELIGHTS TURKISH CONNECTIONS
Native Khan settled the European Breeders’ Fund Maiden swiftly, the 14/1 shot coming clear in the final furlong to win by three and a quarter lengths from Baransky and Bowermaster, both trained by Mahmood Al Zarooni.
The previously unraced two-year-old provided just a second victory in British racing for owner Vefa Araci. His first winner was on the all-weather at Lingfield in December when Gifted Apakay, also ridden by Kieren Fallon, got home by a neck.
Trainer Ed Dunlop said: “He’s done it well - I haven’t seen the time yet, obviously. He’s a horse we bought from the breeze-ups [for 180,000 Guineas]. He’s one of several horses Mr Araci, who’s from Turkey, has with me.
“He’s done it well and Kieren [Fallon] was impressed. He liked him, said he gave him a good feel and he’s got a good temperament. So, hopefully we’ve got a horse to go on with.
“As for future plans, I don’t know. I think he’ll get further, he’s by Azamour. He’ll be sparingly campaigned this year,” said the trainer.
It was the perfect conclusion to a busy day for Araci, who earlier at Tattersalls bought an unnamed two-year-old by Dubawi for 18,000 guineas.

66/1 COTTON MILL VICTORY NO SHOCK TO JARVIS
Cotton Mill, who had finished a well-beaten eighth on his only previous outing on the Rowley Mile back in May, belied his 66/1 odds to take the Three Chimneys Maiden Stakes over 10 furlongs. With totepool, the win paid an amazing £125.20.
Partnered by Joe Fanning, the three-year-old Tiger Hill colt came with a strong run inside the distance to deny Nationalism by half a length with long-time leader Sing Sweetly five lengths back in third.
Trainer William Jarvis commented: “It may have been a shock to the bookmakers, but we have always liked this horse. He is a late foal and is beautifully bred, being a half-brother to Pure Grain. He didn’t know he was a big price!
“There was five lengths back to the third and he could be a good horse. I will talk to the owners before deciding where he goes next. He is still a baby and will be a nice horse next year. He would probably be better with some cut in the ground. The owners have been very patient with him.
“He is a very attractive horse and should stay further in time.”
John Gosden, trainer of runner-up Nationalism, said: “Well, he’s a three-year-old maiden and that tells you everything.
“We just got done in the final furlong and we’ll just have to find another maiden for him.”
Gerard Butler, who handles the third Sing Sweetly, who was some way clear of the field for much of the field before weakening close home, opined: “We intended to take it up but not quite like that!
“Mind you, three furlongs out I thought she might do it but she stopped quite quickly. I’ll be very interested to see the time. I think she might have towed them through for a quick one.”

NASHWAN AL KHALIDIAH - COULD BE ANYTHING IF HE WANTED!
Monsieur Jean-Francois Bernard, trainer of Nashwan Al Khalidiah, could afford to smile after the victory of his six-year-old pure-bred Arabian made easy work of the opposition in the Abu Dhabi International Stakes, the penultimate race on the opening day of the Champagne Lanson July Festival - but the trainer maintained that the horse comes with a warning label.
Bernard, who trains at La Teste de Buch, the second largest training centre after Pau in the south-west of France, said: “He is a very, very strong horse, a very difficult horse, but he has a lot of quality.
“He can be very difficult beforehand and it can be very hard for the jockey. If he wasn’t like that, if he was a bit lazy, perhaps, he would be unbeatable.
“He has won a lot of prize money, but that’s not what the Prince [Khalid bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud] races him for - it’s for the pleasure and prestige.
“He will now go to Newbury on July 18 for the Dubai Duty Free Arabian raceday. He will stay at Newmarket until then,” said Bernard.

Day one of the Champagne Lanson July Festival 2010 ended in perfect fashion for Richard Hughes, who brought up a 168/1 treble when riding Suited And Booted to victory in the concluding Fresssh Bathrooms Handicap over a mile.
The winner benefited from a perfectly-timed Hughes ride as he came with a strong challenge in the final furlong to score by a short-head from Venutius.
Richard Hannon junior, assistant trainer to his father, commented: “This is a horse who is definitely on the up.
“His half-brother Cake was a very useful horse and this horse is by Tagula, who has given us so much success this season with Canford Cliffs.
“He wasn’t finishing his races earlier in the season but has improved massively.”
Richard Morecombe owns the horse in partnership with Des Anderson and he added: “We had Cake but Suited And Booted is a different kind of horse.
“He was the top-rated horse in the race, although he is three-year-old and we were a bit wary about taking on older horses at this time of the year.”
TWO JOCKEYS STOOD DOWN BY DOCTOR
Two jockeys, Martin Dwyer and Jamie Spencer, were stood down from riding in the last by the racecourse doctor. They are both expected to be able to ride tomorrow.

GOING NEWS AT 10.00am
Following a dry night, the going for day one of the 2010 Champagne Lanson July Festival is:
GOOD TO FIRM (Watered)
The average GoingStick reading across the course taken at 8.00am today was 8.0. The individual GoingStick readings are: Stands’ Side: 7.9; Centre 8.2; Far Side 7.9.
Half an inch of water was applied to the course yesterday.
The three days of the Champagne Lanson July Festival take place on the far side of the course, utilising ground which has not been raced on since August, 2009.
The forecast for today is for mainly dry conditions with sunny breaks and the chance of light showers in the afternoon and into the evening. Maximum temperature 23 Celsius.
Thursday, Champagne Lanson Ladies Day, is likely to stay dry with sunny spells and a maximum temperature of 24 Celsius.
Friday, Darley July Cup Day, is forecast to be dry once again, but warmer, withmperatures reaching 27 Celsius.
Michael Prosser, Clerk of the Course and Director of Racing at Newmarket Racecourses, commented: “The track is looking great shape ahead of what promises to be three excellent days racing at the Champagne Lanson July Festival.”
Blood Sweat And Tears, the band, made millions with a song Spinning Wheel that started, "What Goes Up Must Come Down." Well, the horse named after the band, appears to know exactly what those lyrics meant for Bloodsweatandtears, an unraced two-year-old trained by William Knight, has been all the rage in the European Breeders' Fund Maiden Stakes [3:45pm]. The odds for Bloodsweatandtears haven't just come down, they've come tumbling down: 6/1 from 14/1 with SkyBet; 5/1 from 14/1 with William Hill; 5/1 from 18/1 with totesport; and just 9/2 from 14/1 with Paddy Power.
The Group One Etihad Airways Falmouth Stakes [3:10pm] is the highspot of the day's racing and the hunt appears to be on for one to take on the favourite, Lillie Langtry, who Paddy Power reports has eased to 9/4 from 2/1. Music Show, who won the Nell Gywn Stakes, is the one the punters have latched on to, 8/1 from 10/1 with Paddy Power, and 17/2 from 10/1 with William Hill.
Memory is a very warm order for the Group Two Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes [2:35pm], 8/11 from 4/5 with SkyBet, and even shorter, 8/13 from 4/5, with William Hill. Given the strike rate of the Richard Hannon stable this season, it's hardly surprising that no one wants to take this one on.
In the day's opener, the Champagne Lanson EBF Fillies Handicap [1:30pm], Miss Zooter, trained by Ralph Beckett, has come in for some support; 13/2 from 8/1 with William Hill, and 6/1 from 7/1 with totesport.
In the totesport.com Handicap [2:00pm], the Hughie Morrison-trained Pastoral Player has found friends, 12/1 from 14/1 with William Hill, and 10/1 from 12/1 with SkyBet. In the same race, Deacon Blues, trained by James Fanshawe, has also been supported, 6/1 from 8/1 with totesport.
