Horseracing: New top lady for Michael.
As Channel 4 pulled the plug at Newmarket and switched to the Labour Party conference Enthused (11-8) trailed in a disappointing sixth behind Sir Michael Stoute's second string, Regal Rose, ridden by Frankie Dettori.
Stoute now has the top three in the betting for the Sagitta 1000 Guineas.
Ladbrokes pushed out previous favourite Enthused to 10-1, same price as Regal Rose, and brought in Karasta to 6-1 market leader.
William Hill were more impressed with Regal Rose, going 6-1 along with Karasta.
Stoute gave no clues as to his best hope for the fillies' classic.
"I might be able to tell you a bit more after the early trials," he said.
Dettori was more forthcoming. "You have to make Regal Rose favourite," he said. She has a good cruising speed and an excellent turn of foot. With a faster pace she would have been more impressive."
Mozart is best-priced at 20-1 with William Hill for next year's Sagitta 2000 Guineas following his win in a dramatic pounds 400000 Tattersalls Houghton Stakes. The 5-4 favourite's task was made easier when main rival Eminence walked out of the stalls and refused to race.
APPRENTICE Philip Cheng died yesterday from injuries sustained in a fall at Sha Tin, Hong Kong, over the weekend. Cheng, 20, rode in Britain this summer for trainer Gary Moore, finishing second in an apprentice race at Epsom.
