Supaseus Rewards Patience in Cambridgeshire Thriller
03/10/09

1 (9) Supaseus 16/1
2 (25) Tartan Gigha 33/1
3 (6) Nanton 33/1
4 (31) Applause 10/1

Supaseus put an injury sustained on the plane to Dubai behind him with a thrilling pillar-to-post victory in the totesport.com Cambridgeshire. Hughie Morrison’s 16/1 charge repelled a late thrust from 33/1 hope Tartan Gigha, who forced a photo-finish, by a nose.

Supaseus

“I thought he’d been caught actually so it’s a huge relief,” said a beaming Morrison after Supaseus secured his most valuable prize to date.

“I wasn’t sure we’d ever get him back to be the horse he used to be. He flipped over in the plane and cracked his coccyx but it became displaced when he ran. We did what the vet said and just looked after him but these big old horses need a few runs to get back.”

The trainer continued: “It was always the plan to jump out and make all but I have to say Travis (Block) gave him an absolute peach of a ride. He’s proved what a good jockey he is - he’s a supreme judge of pace and he’s advertised himself well there.”

The six-year-old homebred owned by Sir Martyn and Ben Arbib was recording his third win at Newmarket and has also won the Wolferton Stakes at Royal Ascot.

“They gave him an easy lead and he’s a difficult horse to pass - mind you, on his homework he doesn’t do much,” said Morrison.

“He’s a class horse on his day. This horse deserves to win a big race every year and he’s done that for the last three years. This is a great team effort and it’s wonderful to have owners who are so patient.”

The time of 1m 47.48s was just 0.22s outside the record.

Block added: “Mr Morrison said if we got an easy lead to go on. All credit to Mr Morrison for getting this horse back and I'm just thankful I got the ride on him today.

“Driving here today, I thought he doesn't feel like a horse who is fast enough to make it in the Cambridgeshire.”

NO AUTUMN DOUBLE FOR GALLANT NANTON

Nanton

Nanton

Nanton’s tilt at the Autumn Double came undone when the Jim Goldie-trained grey could finish no better than a gallant third in the totesport.com Cambridgeshire, a length and a half behind the winner Supaseus.

The seven-year-old is also entered in the second leg of the historic autumn challenge, the totesport.com Cesarewitch over two and a quarter miles at Newmarket on Saturday, October 17, but Goldie is unsure about whether Nanton will take up that engagement.

No horse has completed the Autumn Double since Plaisanterie in 1885.

Goldie said: “I’ll probably not run him in the Cesarewitch but I don’t know. He has proved himself again at a mile and a quarter so we’ll probably save him for Dubai. If it’s fast ground we might have to sit down and think about the Cesarewitch but I really don’t know.”

Nanton, runner-up at 66/1 a year ago, was making the frame for the second successive year in the nine-furlong totesport.com Cambridgeshire, despite starting from an unfavourbale draw in stall four.

Goldie’s versatile charge is a regular in big handicaps and has finished fourth in the Royal Hunt Cup over a mile and the totesport Ebor over a mile and three quarters already this season.

The trainer continued: “He travelled brilliantly all the way and it looks like we haven’t slowed him down by running him at a mile and six. I would have preferred it if he had been drawn high. We were stuck out there away from the pace.”

Mark Johnston’s string is in fantastic form at present and the trainer came close to clinching a second major prize of the meeting following Awzaan’s victory in yesterday’s Group One Shadwell Middle Park Stakes.

The Middleham handler’s Tartan Gighe went head to head with eventual winner Supaseus through the final furlong but was edged out by a nose at the line.

Johnston said: “From where I was standing, I didn’t think he had got up but I thought he was going to at on point. He just came too soon. I have no plans for him at this moment.=

“It’s incredible, the horses have had such a long season but they’re still running so well.”
