Mick Channon is reaping a bountiful harvest with his juveniles but standard bearer CHILWORTH ICON be one of the horses who carries highest hopes of victory next week.

The four-year-old came good last time and looks set for a trip to Yarmouth for another all-aged handicap. He's looked in top fettle since that confidence-boosting triumph.

In the two-year-old division EUTHENIA happily up the main all-weather this morning. She has proved hard to win with, but appears to hold solid claims in the fillies' nursery at Bath.

CONSTABLE BUCKLEY very well on his debut and has delighted connections in his subsequent work. He looks poised for a warm maiden at Sandown next Wednesday.

POPESWOOD have found a competitive York handicap coming too soon after his cosy triumph in an identical race at Sandown.


Much of the gallops in and around the town were shrouded in fog.

The same was true at Long Hill where Sir Michael Stoute sent some juveniles.

DARTMOUTH gone forward for a satisfactory debut effort at Goodwood and is one to note.

SWAHEEN find his forte in nurseries.

Lambourn, September 12

Richard Hannon sent a posse of horses that are set for action over the weekend up the network of all-weathers at Herridge and Everleigh.

ESTIDHKAAR in his winding-up gallop for the Champagne Stakes and breezed beautifully ahead of the Group Two that opens the St Leger day card at Doncaster tomorrow.

Hannon appears intent on landing the nursery and his contenders MARSHALL JENNINGS, SERVERY SILVER QUAY differing cases to put forward.

Silver Quay is especially interesting, as his latest winning run showed a great deal of improvement on previous efforts.

Several other juveniles came up the strip including GEOLOGICAL, ENVISIONING IMPERIAL WAR all head to Bath.

HARBOUR PATROL SYDNEY RUFFDIAMOND run in the next few days and both have improved since their latest offerings on the track.

WINDSHEAR solid credentials into the Ladbrokes St Leger and few horses deserve a change of luck more.

Having finished runner-up in his last four starts, the colt is showing as much sparkle in his work than at any time.

PROFESSOR up for the Park Stakes with a pleasing blow out, while CHAMPIONSHIP in bridle work.

MYSTIC JADE done well ahead of a possible trip to Sandown next week, while SUGAR LUMP seems in good order and has an entry at the same course.

Lambourn, September 11

SCOTLAND been working well in the run-up to the Ladbrokes St Leger and again pleased Andrew Balding in his winding-up gallop ahead of Saturday's final Classic.

The colt took longer than expected to become fully fit and only now is he showing the signs that he could yet emerge as a top level middle-distance three-year-old.

He has a bit to find on the book, but is clearly developing as he showed when giving one of the better yardsticks at Park House plenty to think about in a workout on grass.

WHIPLASH WILLIE set to run in the Doncaster Cup, but worries exist over the ground drying out to the detriment of the six-year-old as Town Moor bakes in abnormally warm conditions.

The gelding has endured his share of problems and is unlikely to be risked if it gets quick. He looked in good order in his final breeze on the main all-weather.

END OF LINE to be at the right end of the handicap for the final race of the Leger festival on Saturday and has been training well.

He needs to improve, but is lightly-raced and going the right way.

Several juveniles worked this week, including DANCE OF FIRE should go well in the nursery on Saturday.

COSMIC RAY to Chester and breezed well to suggest a prominent showing is on the cards.
