King Torus Triumphs at Newmarket

Newmarket's July race event has seen Richard Hannon gaining yet another victory in the Superlative Stakes juvenile Group race with King Torus reigning supreme.

After being suspended for Thursday and foregoing another accomplishment for the group, Richard Hughes restarted his duties on a mount who had previously placed fourth at Royal Ascot in the Chesham Stakes.

Hannon's son and assistant Richard junior said, "He did everything wrong at Royal Ascot so we put a chifney bridle on today.

"He did that very nicely and we might look for a race for him at Deauville.

"Later on there's the Dewhurst and the Gran Criterium in Italy to think about."

Mahmood Al Zarooni said of the second place getter, "He gave Ahmed a very hard ride but he is inexperienced and is improving with every race."

Fading away to last place was the 11-8 favourite, Railway Stakes winner, Formosina.
