Amralah and Joe Fanning (centre) win the Betfred Rose of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock Park

Joe Fanning shone in the saddle as Amralah made every yard for success in the Betfred Rose of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock.

A 16-1 short-head winner at Newbury last month from the reopposing Vancouverite, the Mick Channon-trained winner was again overlooked by punters in going off at 14-1 in this Group Three test.

Fanning, who is riding at the top of his game, soon opened up a handy advantage on the Teofilo colt, as Educate, True Story and Nabucco followed a few lengths behind.

One-time Derby hope True Story began to come under pressure in the straight before eventually staying on again for third, as Amralah saw off the challenge of Hillstar - finishing second for the fourth race in a row - for a relatively cosy length-and-a-quarter success.

Channon did not get to see his charge win as he was stuck in traffic on the M6, but he was pleased to strike nevertheless.

He said: "We have always thought he was a good horse and he's obviously improving. Joe has ridden for me a bit in the past and he's always been great on front runners.

"He's in the Irish Champion Stakes and the sky's the limit."

Fanning said: "He was pretty straightforward. We were allowed to bowl along in front and he's galloped all the way to the line.

"We went a nice early pace and even though he hung to his right a bit, it didn't stop him. I wouldn't think a mile and a half is beyond him and you could ride him any way as long as there's a decent pace.

"Things are going very well for me at the moment. Mark's (Johnston, Fanning's main employer) horses are in great form and I'm getting plenty of outside rides."
