Fahey: Won with Majestic Myles

Fahey: Won with Majestic Myles

Richard Fahey's Majestic Myles defied a 282-day absence to win the coral.co.uk Sprint at Newmarket.

The Majestic Missile gelding was well backed into 17-2 having opened up 12-1 and he stuck to his task gamely under Jack Mitchell as Desert Law threw down his challenge inside the final furlong.

The 3-1 favourite looked the likely winner when Jimmy Fortune loomed up alongside Mitchell at the furlong pole but Majestic Myles found more to record a neck success.

L'Ami Louis (7-2) was two-and-a-quarter lengths further back in third.

Battler

"Mr Fahey said he might be a bit weak and just need it as he fractured his pelvis last year so he wanted me to give him a nice introduction," Mitchell said.

"He's a battler and he travelled so nicely. He got tired but he kept on trying for me."

Fahey's assistant Robin O'Ryan added: "He went wrong last year but has strengthened up well during the winter.

"We went there expecting a good run as he's been working well at home.

"The plan now is to go the big three-year-old sprint at York (Bond Tyres Trophy)."
