Racing: Cruel Jibe for Fallon

Click to follow
Ashraakat had her price cut to as low as 16-1 for the 1,000 Guineas after denting the reputation of Henry Cecil's highly rated Jibe at Newmarket yesterday.

Ashraakat, by Danzig out of Elle Seule, dam of the Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Mehthaaf, made most to win by one and three-quarter lengths. John Dunlop's filly, 16-1 with Coral and Ladbrokes, is 20-1 with William Hill. Jibe, who had drifted from odds-on, trailed in fourth on her debut, with her rider Kieren Fallon soon doubly out of luck. Fallon passed up the ride on Midnight Line, winner of the Prestige Stakes at Goodwood yesterday, to partner Jibe.

Fantasy Island, a debut winner at Newmarket, is now 20-1 with Ladbrokes for the 2,000 Guineas. Hills have him at 25-1.
