News in Brief

Palace Pier tops Horse of the Year standings

Palace Pier has gained a narrow lead at the top of the table to be crowned Cartier Horse of the Year despite his defeat behind Baaeed in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on Champions Day at Ascot last Saturday. Trueshan (84) maintained his lead in the Stayer division after winning the Long Distance Cup for the second year in succession, with his old rival Stradivarius – who finished third behind the Alan King-trained star at the Berkshire track – in joint-second alongside Gold Cup winner Subjectivist (60).

Hollie Doyle rides 150th winner of the season

Hollie Doyle continued her remarkable season by landing her 150th winner of the year on the Richard Spencer trained-Space Cowboy. Doyle made all to land the 6f conditions stakes, the first fast-track qualifier of the season.

Racehorses prohibited from entering human food chain from next year

All horses who are entered to race in Britain will not be allowed to be sent to abattoirs to become a part of the human food chain from January in a major rule change by the BHA.

RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS

2:15 Wolverhampton, 11th October

Thunder Ahead

Harry Dunlop

Thunder Ahead has an each-way chance with cheekpieces.

PRICE 6/1
2:20 Goodwood, 10th October

Lil Guff

Daniel & Claire Kübler

Game filly who runs her race and should be in the mix as she has been all season, handles most conditions and nothing stands out as being miles ahead of her ability wise on form shown to date.

PRICE 6/5F
3:35 Newmarket, 9th October

Buzz

Nicky Henderson

He's in good form but I wouldn't want it to dry up too much. He had some good form on the Flat and he proved at the backend of last season [over hurdles] that he does stay well.

PRICE 8/1
8:00 Chelmsford City, 7th October

Lake Sand

Ali Stronge

Didn’t run too bad last time when we dropped him out. We will try different riding tactics today by running him forward. This is quite a competitive race for the grade, but fingers crossed he can run a solid race.
