Timepiece: Had little chance after being hampered

Clive Brittain's Semayyel readily landed the E.B.F. At The Races John Musker Fillies' Stakes (For The John Musker Trophy) at Yarmouth.

It hasn't been a year to remember for the veteran Newmarket handler but his three year old daughter of Green Desert ran out an easy winner of a spectacularly messy Listed race under Freddie Tylicki at odds of 125-1.

Timepiece was sent off the odds-on favourite as she dropped down to Group One company and Sir Henry Cecil's filly appeared to be travelling easily on the rail just in behind the leaders when she was chopped off.

Queally had to snatch her up and allowed her to come home in her own time thereafter, with the five year old beating only the desperately disappointing Firdaws home.

Hardluck Stories

There were any amount of hardluck stories in behind with second favourite Emirates Queen waiting and waiting for the gaps to come before Kieren Fallon eventually decided to switch her wide for a run when the winner had already flown.

The tricky customer - who was again loaded without her jockey - flew home once in the clear but could only finish fifth with Aniseed and Miss Starlight filling the places at 20-1 and 66-1 for one of the shock results of the season.

Bruce Raymond, representing owner Saeed Manana, said: "It's definitely a surprise but we found she wasn't showing up so well over a shorter distance, so we thought we would try her over longer.

"I was watching the favourite getting tightened up on the fence, but Freddie thought he had a bit in hand."
