Hamilton: Mongan loses right to claim allowance.

APPRENTICE Ian Mongan gained the 95th success of his career, and in the process lost his right to claim an allowance, when he persuaded Alan Bailey's Distinctive Dream to put his best foot forward in the six-furlong handicap.

Mongan, 22, who is based with Gary Moore at Brighton and has run through his allowance in a short period, could hardly have selected a more appropriate course for his achievement.

He said: "I rode my first winner, Harik, at Lingfield two years ago. It is great to have ridden out my claim here, because it is my local track-I was born in Glasgow."

Mongan's total includes a winner over fences and four over hurdles, and he added: "When my weight came down I decided to concentrate on the Flat, but I still school horses over jumps at home and I would prefer to ride in the Grand National than the Derby!"

Ted Durcan was fined pounds 150 for not keeping Albert The Bear straight to the marker pole.
