Paul Eddery out of luck on return

Paul Eddery, brother of the high-flying jockey Pat, failed to make an impact on the first day of his return to race-riding in Britain at Carlisle yesterday.

Paul Eddery, brother of the high-flying jockey Pat, failed to make an impact on the first day of his return to race-riding in Britain at Carlisle yesterday.

The 38-year-old jockey partnered Moon Glow for Sally Hall, runner-up to the easy winner Triple Wood in the Kier Northern Maiden Stakes, but was pleased to be back.

"That feels good," said Paul, who has been abroad for more than two years. "I can't remember the last time I was here. I rode here plenty of times when I was an apprentice for Reg Hollinshead.

"I've been in Germany for a couple of months, where I won the 2,000 Guineas and two Group Twos. Before that I was in India where I rode five Classic winners in all.

"I've really enjoyed my experiences abroad, but with all the jockeys getting suspended I thought it was a good time to come back. There is plenty of racing on a weekend so I should be able to pick up some rides but maybe not winning ones."

Eddery, who won two July Cups on Cadeaux Genereaux and Owington, said: "I can do 8st 2lb and will be based in Newmarket. Ian Wardle is my agent."

Fairgame Man carried the familiar pink and white colours of the leading jumps owner Robert Ogden to victory in some style in the Cumbrian Industrials Maiden Auction Stakes at Carlisle.

The Alan Berry-trained colt was always racing prominently before asserting two furlongs out and drawing comfortably clear to score by one and a quarter lengths from the sponsors' Cumbrian Harmony. "He's a nice little colt," remarked Berry. "He's owned in partnership by Mr Ogden, Fergie [Sir Alex Ferguson] and Jack Hanson. I ran him up here because I thought Fergie might be able to come but he's busy training."

Friar Tuck took advantage of the favourable race conditions of the Industrial Securities Classified Stakes to beat Pure Elegancia a shade cosily by one and a quarter lengths.

The five-furlong dash for horses rated 0-70 was run to suit Linda Perratt's five-year-old.

The British government has announced plans to remove junk food from school lunches. From September 2006, food that is high in fat, sugar or salt will be banned from meals and removed from vending machines in schools across England. The move comes in response to a campaign by celebrity TV chef Jamie Oliver to improve school meals.
