HOOFPRINTS GALLOPING BACK IN TIME.

Byline: IAN TAYLOR

30 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK

NO Welshing on bets now chaps as Taffy Thomas lands a nice touch in the William Hill Sprint Trophy at York for Michael Stoute on the heavily- punted 11 to 4 chance Alphadamus.

MICHAEL Jarvis gets his Royal Ascot meeting off to a flyer when saddling Pitskelly to bolt home in the Jersey Stakes and Bitty Girl is the fastest lady home in the Queen Mary.

ONLY two runners go to post for the St James Palace Stakes and although hard to split on the books Vincent O'Brien's Thatch (L Piggott) raises the roof when winning by 15 lengths from Noel Murless' 10 to 11 fav Owen Dudley (G Lewis).

BRUCE Hobbs' champion two-year-old Jacinth (J Gorton), beaten when odds- on for the 1000 Guineas, redeems herself with an easy win in the Coronation Stakes.

PAT Eddery sends his followers home happy when land the last two races on the card with Irish raider Tara Brooch at 10's (Queen's Vase) and Loyal Guard at 7's (Bessborough Stakes) for guv'nor Peter Walwyn.

20 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK

MICHAEL Stoute's Autumn Sunset (E Johnson) takes full advantage of the 27lbs he's getting from Paul Felgate's game outsider Jonacris (M Miller) to scramble home in York's William Hill Trophy en-route to a successful Stoute tilt at the Stewards' Cup at Goodwood.

IN the Coventry Stakes, Ron Sheather's Chief Singer (R Cochrane) makes an impressive racecourse debut when hacking up by four lengths at 20's from Mick O'Toole's Hegemony (L Piggott).

LORD Derby's famous colours are carried to victory in the Britannia H'cap by Bill Watts' colt Teleprompter (W Carson) a popular 8 to 1 winner who goes on to claim a famous victory in Chicago's Arlington Million.

THE King's Stand Stakes goes to Bill O'Gorman's double carpet chance Sayf El Arab ridden by Taffy Thomas who makes all to blunt David Chapman's improving filly Soba (D Nicholls).

JIM Bolger's 11 to 2 chance Flame of Tara (D Gillespie) gamely sticks her neck out to hold off Geoff Wragg's hot favourite Favoridge (P Eddery) in the Coronation Stakes.

10 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK

MICK Channon's 33 to 1 shot Aradanza ridden by Paul Eddery edge home by a head in York's big sprint from Mrs Piggott's Troon with the hubby on board (nae tea for the Long Fellow tonight then!)

MARTIN Pipe-trained Balasani (M Perrett) becomes one of the few horses to win at Royal Ascot and the Cheltenham Festival when bolting up in the Ascot Stakes. The 1994 Stayers' Hurdle winner joins the illustrious company of Tommy Robson's Harvest Gold, Brown Jack and Heighlin.

IN the King Edward VII Stakes, three necks separate the first four home with Geoff Wragg's 11 to 4 fav Beneficial just getting up under Richard Hills to pip John Gosden's Winged Victory.

HENRY Cecil's Tapis Rouge (M Roberts) goes off 15 to 2 fav for the Hunt Cup, but it's stablemate Imperial Ballet (P Eddery) at 20's who's a shoe-in.

CRIQUETTE Head's Gold Splash (G Mosse) holds off Andre Fabre's Elizabeth Bay (T Jarnet) to land the Coronation Stakes with the Barry Hills' fav Nicer running like a coo back in fourth.

LORD Huntingdon's 13 to 2 chance Drum Taps (L Dettori) lands back-to-back Gold Cups when cuffing Assessor (T Quinn) with Hammond's fav Sought Out (C Asmussen) posted missing.
