YESTERDAY'S HIGHLIGHTS.

?Although Threat Assessed, winner of the 2.10 at Sandown, never went above his Betfair SP of 15 in running, backers of runner-up Dommersen must be cursing their luck, as Frankie Dettori's mount went as short as 1.05 in the run before the winner's late swoop.

. ??It was hardly a highlight for followers of The Edge, but lead selection Franklin D was subject to an equally agonising defeat in the following BetStars By PokerStars Handicap (2.45).

Still three lengths clear as the field entered the final furlong, Franklin D traded as short as 1.17 before favourite Mutamakkin swept by him in the closing stages. Franklin D might have traded shorter still but for wandering in front, which cannot be said to have cost him the race given the winner's superiority at the line.

??Mick Channon had five winners across three countries last Saturday and had winners at Bath and Sandown yesterday, as well as a couple of near-misses at the former course.
