Pisco Sour wins under Jimmy Fortune

Pisco Sour wins under Jimmy Fortune

Pisco Sour won the Tercentenary Stakes to register a Royal Ascot double for Hughie Morrison.

The East Ilsley handler won the previous race with Sagramor and made it a quickfire double as Jimmy Fortune pushed out the 20-1 shot for a length and three quarter victory.

It was the first boost for the Investec Derby form as Pisco Sour ran ninth behind Pour Moi at Epsom.

Alkimos (13-2) finished second under Kieren Fallon while Slumber (10-1) found trouble in running and finished a perhaps unlucky third.

Quality

Morrison said: "We thought Sagramor would run well, but the way Pisco Sour put that horse to bed on the gallops on Saturday you had to feel hopeful.

"But then you looked at the quality in the field and thought we'd just have a run round.

"You can forget about the Derby - that was trainer error as he was too fresh.

"I probably didn't do enough with him after the Dante. He was a bit jarred up so we looked after him.

"I knew if we could settle him he would run have a serious chance.

"We'll definitely be looking at the St Leger now."

Fortune added: "He travelled very well. When he went to Epsom he was probably a bit fresh.

"He pulled very hard going down and early on, and I don't think he handled the track.

"I knew he stays a mile and a half. I was surprised how easy I got there.

"He's improved a lot from last year to this. He's a horse going the right way."
