A quick replacement for Lammtarra as a prospective Breeders' Cup winner for Britain emerged yesterday when Lake Coniston suggested that he was over the problems which caused him to run so poorly in the Haydock Park Sprint Cup last month, writes Richard Edmondson.

The four-year-old worked impressively around the replica Belmont Park bend that Geoff Lewis had constructed at his Epsom yard. "It was quite greasey on top so I was a little anxious when he worked up to full speed," the trainer said. "But he came round there as well as paint and whatever beats him in the Breeders' Cup Sprint will have to be a bloody good horse."
