Geoff Lewis came back from the wilderness with a 135-1 double at Kempton Park yesterday. The Epsom trainer tasted success for the first time since last August with Strathmore Clear (11-2) and Eastern Prophets (20-1).

Lewis said: "I thought my horses had been running a gallop short, but they are back in form, and last season's problems are behind us. I think I've got a really nice bunch of horses.

"The owners have been very patient. Remember last season was the first bad year I've had, bar my first year when I couldn't train. I had five winners in my first season. The first came on the opening day and it took me all year to get the other four."
