Hemingway 13-8 for Trophy test

Cashmans, the Irish bookmakers, make Aidan O'Brien's Hemingway the 13-8 favourite for the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster on Saturday. Next in the betting at 9-2 are his stable companion King's County and Richard Hannon's Tamburlaine. O'Brien also trains Darwin (11-2) and Beckett (7-1). Cashmans then go 12-1 Cd Europe, 20-1 Dayglow Dancer and 33-1 Cauvery. John Dunlop's Fair Question misses the race.

Arkadian Hero will try to give Luca Cumani his second win in the Breeders' Cup Mile at Churchill Downs next month. The Newmarket trainer, who won the race in 1994 with Barathea, said: "I think the track will suit him and Jamie Spencer will ride."

Cumani may also run Boreas in the St Simon Stakes at Newbury on Saturday. The five-year-old has not run since finishing second to Give The Slip when favourite for the Ebor.

25 stood their ground yesterday for Saturday's Caulfield Cup in Australia. Godolphin's All The Way heads the weights for the mile-and-a-half contest on 8st 10lb. The Saeed bin Suroor-trained four-year-old will be ridden by Greg Hall. The other European challenger is John Hammond's Mont Rocher, the mount of John Marshall. The French stayer may be aimed at the Melbourne Cup on 7 November. Other Melbourne Cup fancies declared for the Caulfield include Freemason, Citra's Prince and Coco Cobanna. The Caulfield Cup field is limited to 18 plus three reserves. The final line-up is decided by the Victoria Amateur Turf Club Committee today.

Best Mate made an impressive debut over fences in the Mantech Novices' Chase at Exeter yesterday. The Henrietta Knight-trained five-year-old, runner-up in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, started 1-2 favourite for the two miles and 330 yards contest and, jumping cleanly, never gave his supporters a moment's worry.

Bindaree set out to make all, with Shooting Light, Prah Sands and Best Mate in touch. As the tempo quickened down the far side, Prah Sands fell away, leaving Bindaree and Shooting Light disputing the lead. But, tucked in behind them, Best Mate was always going best and Jim Culloty eased him into the lead between the last two fences before he cruised home by two and a half lengths from Bindaree. Coral cut Best Mate to 6-1 from 10-1 for the Independent Arkle Challenge Trophy (Novice) Chase at the Cheltenham Festival next March.

Richard Johnson rode a 35-1 treble on Lord Cyprus, Reiziger and Surprising. Johnson is on 81 winners this season, five behind Tony McCoy.

* Pat Eddery was given a four-day suspension (26-28 October and 30 October) at Yarmouth yesterday for irresponsible riding on Sir Francis in the Mautby Stakes. The ban virtually ensures that Kevin Darley will be champion Flat jockey.
