RECENT WINNER SILVER ELITE UP FOR GRABS AT NEWMARKET THIS WEEKEND
The chance to own racehorse Silver Elite for the SportingOdds.com Grey Horse Handicap Stakes now looks even more appealing after the Gay Kelleway-trained filly was triumphant in the Ladbrokes Handicap over five furlongs at Wolverhampton this afternoon.
Racegoers arriving at the July Course for either tonight's or tomorrow afternoon's racing will have the chance to enter a competition, organised by SportingOdds.com, and win Silver Elite for the day on August 16.
Silver Elite is set to have her next start in the £10,000-added SportingOdds.com Grey Horse Handicap Stakes over six furlongs at Newmarket on Saturday, August 16. This contest will be the first race just for grey horses ever staged in Britain and should prove to be a wonderful spectacle.
The lucky racegoer who manages to win Silver Elite for the August 16 meeting will also be entertained by Gay Kelleway and receive lunch in the July restaurant. A £200 free bet has been donated courtesy of SportingOdds.com and the competition winner will also be able keep 50% of any prize money won by Silver Elite on the day.
Lisa Hancock, Newmarket's Managing Director, commented: "I urge all racegoers attending the July Course either tonight or tomorrow to enter this competition, which provides a wonderful prize of owning a grey racehorse for the day and much more.
"Following on from her success at Wolverhampton this afternoon, Silver Elite must be a very live contender for the £10,000-added SportingOdds.com Grey Horse Handicap Stakes at Newmarket on August 16."
FIVE IN HUNT FOR £853,000 SCOOP6 PRIZE
The five holders of last weeks winning Scoop tickets will be preparing themselves for another possible windfall tomorrow when they have the chance to add the £853,245 Bonus Prize fund to the £146,013 Win Fund dividend landed last week.
To land the spoils the five need to find the winner of the 2.25 race from Newmarket, the Cathy Marr Memorial Handicap (previously the 5.20 race at Newmarket).
"The Scoop6 has been performing exceptionally over the last ten weeks, with the average weekly turnover topping £500,000 and over one million bets placed during this period," said Tote spokesman Jeremy Scott.
"Indeed for the previous eight weeks there has never been less than half a million pounds lining the combined Win and Bonus Prize funds going into any Scoop6 Saturday, with the figure topping the £1million mark three times, and its not all over yet!"
"The Bonus race tomorrow looks a pretty competitive affair and the five are going to have to put some graft into their form studying if they are to come up with the winner. If they fail to do so the cash will roll on again edging closer to the magic £1 million mark!"
Saturday's Scoop6 legs are:
leg 1 - 1.55 Newmarket
leg 2 - 2.00 Haydock
leg 3 - 2.25 Newmarket (was the 5.20 from Newmarket)
leg 4 - 3.00 Newmarket
leg 5 - 3.10 Haydock
leg 6 - 3.35 Newmarket

NEIL CALLAN APPEAL RESULT
Panel: Andrew Merriam (Chairman), John Wallinger and William Bethell
The Disciplinary Panel of the Jockey Club, on 8th August 2003, considered an appeal lodged by Neil Callan, the rider of DOUBLE M, placed third in the betfair.com Handicap Stakes, against the decision of the Stewards at Windsor following an enquiry on 4th August 2003 to find him guilty of dangerous riding and to suspend him from riding for fourteen days.
The Panel heard evidence from Callan and Mark Savage, the rider of SHADY
DEAL, unplaced. It also viewed video recordings of the race.
The Panel found that there were was interference inside the final furlong in
that DOUBLE M had initially interfered with INTELLIBET ONE, ridden by Graham
Gibbons, unplaced who in turn interfered with MY BROTHER ridden by Paul
Quinn, unplaced and subsequently with SHADY DEAL who in turn interfered with
DUNEDIN RASCAL ridden by Stephen Carson, unplaced.
The Panel found that the interference was caused by dangerous riding on the
part of Callan in that he had caused serious interference by failing for a
sustained period of time to take corrective action in drifting two thirds of
the way across the course. It considered this was riding in a way which was
far below that of a competent and careful rider and where it should have
been obvious that it was likely to endanger the safety of other horses or
The Panel did not consider that Callan's explanation that he had not
interfered with INTELLIBET ONE nor that the subsequent interference was
merely careless was borne out by the video evidence.
It therefore dismissed his appeal against the finding of dangerous riding
and confirmed the disqualification of DOUBLE M and the placings of STOKESIES
WISH third and INTELLIBET ONE fourth
However it upheld his appeal against penalty and suspended him from riding
for 10 days, from Wednesday 13th August to Friday 22nd August inclusive. It
ordered Callan to forfeit his riding fee and ordered the deposit money of
£450 to be returned.
