Main Edition wins under James Doyle for Mark Johnston

Main Edition
The Mark Johnston-trained Main Edition provided jockey James Doyle with his second victory of the week to maintain her unbeaten record.
The two-year-old daughter of Zoffany ran on strongly in the closing stages to score by a neck in the six-furlong contest, with Doyle registering his tenth victory overall at the Royal Meeting.
Godolphin's La Pelosa was second, with the Aidan O'Brien-trained Fairyland, a half-length back in third.
Doyle, who rode Poet's Word to victory in Wednesday's G1 Prince of Wales's Stakes, said: "It wasn't easy for Main Edition from our draw [15 of the 18 runners]. I went straight up where the carriages came down earlier.
"It was just where I found myself and, with the pressure going on to the ground, it must be quicker anyway. 
"That was the only advantage I could get as I had nothing to race with and had to do it all on my own. 
"I had such a willing partner today - she was so brave late on. Full credit to everyone at Mark Johnston's and the whole team."
Doyle picked up a two-day ban for using the whip above the permitted level in the last furlong and a half.
Bruce Raymond, Racing Manager to owner Rabbah Bloodstock, which includes today's owner Saif Ali and also to Saeed Suhail, who owned G1 Prince of Wales's Stakes victor Poet's Word, commented: "It's lovely to have two winners here this week. Poet's Word obviously had a good chance as I felt he had less to beat compared to Main Edition
"We thought it was between Poet's Word and Cracksman in the Prince of Wales's Stakes and that is how it turned out.
"Main Edition is a very tough filly who stays very well. She was in the firing line and she was never going to stop - she won nicely there."
