Kieren Fallon reached the 100-winner mark for the season last night when steering the well-backed Jambo to victory at Nottingham. It is the 31-year-old County Clare-born jockey's first century in Britain.

It was eight years ago that Fallon rode his first winner in this country, Evichstar at Thirsk. His previous best British total came last year with 91 winners.

Earlier, at Newcastle yesterday afternoon Fallon had impressed with his performance on Top of The Wind, who had caused problems in the paddock before the Northern Racing Nursery.

Fallon was pushing his mount along at the halfway stage but she finally struck the front in the final furlong and proved one length too good for Our Future.
