INCHINOR may join the British challenge for the Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita, California, after getting up in the final stride to take the Hungerford Stakes at Newbury yesterday.

Roger Charlton's colt is barely 15 hands high, but his trainer believes that his diminutive stature, and gritty attitude, could serve him well on the tight American circuit.

Robert Sangster's promising colt Colonel Collins, the 2-11 favourite, proved little with his facile success against three rivals in the Washington Singer Stakes, but remains one of five joint-favourites at 16-1 for next year's 2,000 Guineas.

Another of that group, Sangster's unraced Kalkabrino, is unwell and may not see a racecourse until next season.
