Horse Racing: OZ FLY GUY KERRIN ON HIGH.

Byline: By ROBIN WEIR

THE Boys in Blue were to the four again in the day's big race at Doncaster.

Ibn Khaldun, who rattled up a hat-trick last time out, justified favouritism at 11-4 with a slick performance to win the Racing Post Trophy.

Godolphin's colt showed a fine turn of foot to power right away from his rivals at the business end of the Group One highlight.

Kerrin McEvoy did not have to get serious to see off City Leader (8-1) by three lengths with 66-1 outsider Feared In Flight third.

After seeing out the mile trip in fine style Godolphin's second Group One-winning juvenile of the campaign earned varying quotes for next season's Classics.

VC Bet make him 16-1 for the 2000 Guineas while sponsors Stan James cut him to 12-1 from 20s.

McEvoy, who jetted back from Australia specially to ride the colt, said: "It's my first Group One of the year so I'm happy.

"They went a nice tempo - he has improved with every start."

IT was a whitewash for the Europeans in the Breeders' Cup event at Monmouth, New Jersey.

Biggest shock was the defeat of 6-5 hotpot Dylan Thomas, the Arc hero finishing out with the washing in the big turf race.
