Tasleet

Although taking time to warm to the task, the 2-1 favourite picked up well in the hands of Paul Hanagan to give trainer William Haggas a third successive win in the valuable six-furlong contest.

A Momentofmadness blazed the trail on the far side early on before eventually weakening out of the picture, as Delizia and Orvar moved through to take up matters.

Despite having plenty of horses in front of him, Tasleet motored up the gears in the manner of a useful horse to go one better than in the Richmond Stakes and hold off the staying-on Ferryover by half a length, paying a big compliment to his Goodwood conqueror Shalaa.

Hanagan said: "I thought the ground just went against him. It's a bit dead out there.

"He can get very unbalanced at times and he just struggled to get his feet out."

Haggas said: "I thought he had the best form, although he had a penalty, but you never know about big fields and I was worried about the ground.

"His run in the Richmond was very good and when you buy one at Doncaster (sales) you plan to go for this huge pot. This has been the idea since he showed he could run a bit."

"These races are a great concept and we're delighted to have won the last three runnings of it.

"He was a relatively cheap buy at £52,000, so he's proved a good bit of business by Angus (Gold, owner Sheikh Hamdan's racing manager).

"I was worried about the ground for him, he hasn't won by very far. I don't think he was at his best today.

"Who knows if he's a Guineas horse? He's tough and might go for the Middle Park next."

Kevin Ryan, trainer of Ferryover, said: "Both mine ran great races. Graham (Lee) said Top Of The Bank didn't handle the ground very well, but Ferryover is growing up and is a stronger horse now.

"He came home great and will probably go for the sales race at Doncaster next month."
