Summit Surge Swamps Sky Bet Stakes
24/07/10

1 Summit Surge 8/1
2 Bushman 5/1
3 Allybar 4/1

Luca Cumani's Summit Surge came with a late thrust to deny Bushman in the Sky Bet York Stakes as Kieren Fallon set up a big-race double on the Knavesmire.

Second in Italy behind Pressing on his last start, the former Ger Lyons-trained six-year-old (8-1) sneaked up the inside to claim Group Two glory.

Bushman tracked long-time leader Monitor Closely into the straight before kicking on and he looked to be going best of all, but Fallon unleashed Summit Surge inside the final furlong to win going away by a length and a quarter.

"I've been dying to run him over further and fast ground is what he needs," said Cumani.

"He showed a nice turn of foot. We took him out to Dubai and he ran well on turf, but didn't like the Tapeta.

"There's the Rose Of Lancaster next for him, I think, but the ground would have to be fast, which it very rarely is at Haydock."

Jockey Neil Callan added of the runner-up: "He definitely got the trip, he was just beaten by a better horse.

"I beat him last time on Pressing, who is a genuine Group One horse, so there is no disgrace being beaten."

Fallon completed his double on the Jim Goldie-trained Hawkeyethenoo in the Sky Bet Dash.
