Tabarrak scores at NewburyRichard Hannon stole the show at Newbury with a 1,070-1 treble highlighted by the victory of Tabarrak in the feature Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships Cup Stakes.

After finishing second in a Group Three at Salisbury, the four-year-old successfully took a drop down to Listed class when holding the late charge of Accidental Agent by half a length to complete the Marlborough handler's three-timer.

Hannon said of the 5-1 winner: "He was unlucky not to win the Sovereign Stakes. He did it the hard way there and Jim Crowley gave him a super ride. He is a lovely horse to have about. He will either go to Dubai or stay here for next year. If he doesn't stay, he has been a pleasure to have about. He has done us proud."

Orange Suit (20-1) has a long way to go before emulating half-sister and 2015 St Leger winner Simple Verse, but he took a step in the right direction when initiating Hannon's haul in the first division of the British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes.

Hannon said: "He was in today over six furlongs, but he came here because it is a nice time of year for late-maturing horses. He did surprise me as I thought he would run well and be fifth or sixth. He is crying out for seven furlongs or a mile."

Rogue (15-2) formed the middle leg of Hannon's treble when backing up his last-time-out success at Newbury with a short-head victory in the Dubai Duty Free Nursery.

Hugo Palmer can begin to map out more ambitious plans for White Mocha (13-8) after he joined an illustrious roll of honour, including the likes of Shergar and Rainbow Quest, when holding on by a nose from Knight To Behold in the Haynes, Hanson & Clark Conditions Stakes.

George Boughey, assistant trainer, said: "James Doyle said he is next year's horse and that he got a bit lonely in front. He stuck on well. He will get further in time, but he is still not slow. I'd be surprised if he runs again this season."

Eve Johnston Houghton is enjoying her best year numerically and Magnolia Springs (25-1) provided her with winner number 45 of the season in the Dubai Duty Free Full Of Surprises EBF Stallions' Fillies Conditions Stakes.

She said: "She is gorgeous this filly. When you have something that nice, you don't want to set yourself up to be disappointed. I was surprised by how well she won, but I love her.

"She is not in anything and she might not run again this year."


The display of Magnolia Springs in the fillies' conditions contest was taking, but the performance of the William Haggas-trained Beshaayir in defeating the colts in the second division of the six-furlong maiden eclipsed that effort.

Although it was suggested by the winning trainer that the daughter of Iffraaj may not be seen out again this season, her entries in the Rockfel and Cheveley Park gives an indication of the ability she is thought to possess.


Kieran Shoemark is embroiled in a battle for the apprentice jockeys' title and showed why he is in high demand when keeping his cool to score on Blakeney Point.

Although missing the start, the young rider stayed calm to chart a wide path on the Roger Charlton-trained four-year-old before steering him to glory by three-quarters of a length.


William Haggas believes that Beshaayir will come into her own once stepped up in trip, but he also hopes she will turn out to be better than her brother Khalaas.

He said: "She will definitely get further. I trained her full-brother but he was not very good mind you, a mile was his best trip."
