Premio Loco

Chris Wall's seven-year-old looked beaten a furlong out as Richard Hills appeared to be travelling best on William Haggas's challenger.

But as Dafeef took his time to hit top gear, George Baker got a great tune out of Premio Loco (15-8 favourite) to win by half a length.

Wall said: "Things hadn't worked out for him this year and our horses were running a bit flat earlier in the campaign.

"We were running out of opportunities for him and this is not his best trip, but the ground came right for him and now he's got a second Group Two under his belt. He'll probably go for the Joel Stakes at Newmarket next."

Frankie Dettori had no luck in the Ladbrokes St Leger on Blue Bunting, but at least he kept his supporters happy with a double for Godolphin and trainer Saeed bin Suroor on Man Of Action and Anjaz.

Dettori benefited from a late switch to steer Man Of Action (13-2) to victory in the AgriArgo UK Tractor Challenge Handicap, replacing Robert Havlin on Godolphin's runner after Sarrsar was taken out because of the quick conditions.

The jockey bided his time on the four-year-old, who quickened with some aplomb in the final furlong to win by one and a half lengths from Eton Forever, with Casual Glimpse a head away in third.

Bin Suroor said: "The ground is the key to him. If it was fast I knew he would run well. Today Frankie sat him in behind and got him nice and relaxed. I know this horse always shows a good turn of foot at home. The nine furlongs of the Cambridgeshire should suit him well."

Anjaz (7-2 joint-favourite) followed up her Kempton debut success with a half-length call over Burano in the Stratstone Endurance Nursery and the trainer went on: "She is improving all the time. She is up to Listed or Group Three level. We will find another race for her this year."
