Fallon - Haydock winner.

Kieren Fallon got a fine run out of Bewitched (5-1 co-favourite) to land the J.W. Lees Sandy Lane Stakes for Irish trainer Charles O'Brien.

Rainfall and Mister Manannan looked to have the race between them with two furlongs to go, but Fallon got to work on his mount who responded in game fashion to join the leading two.

Bewitched hit the front and went on to score by three-quarters of a length from Rainfall with Mister Manannan another two and three-quarter lengths back in third.

"She got away with the ground rather than enjoyed it. That was Plan A, I don't know what we will do now. There are not a lot of options for her as we like to keep the three-year-olds in their own age group," said O'Brien.

"I don't think there is anything at Royal Ascot for her anyway, but maybe next year."

Fallon added: "I've had a few rides for Charles but I think it is my first winner for him. She likes quicker ground than this today and I think she will go on from here."
