HORSES with optimistic names rarely live up to them, but Star Talent may prove to be an exception.

David Elsworth's colt produced a sharp turn of foot to take the Whitchurch Conditions Stakes at Salisbury yesterday, and the trainer predicted that the son of Local Talent 'could be a bit special'. He holds entries in the Dewhurst Stakes and the Racing Post Trophy.

White Muzzle is 7-4 favourite with William Hill for next Tuesday's International Stakes at York. The firm then bet: 9-4 Sabrehill, 8-1 Tenby, 10-1 Blues Traveller & Sueboog, 14-1 Revelation, 16-1 Alhijaz, Ezzoud & Red Bishop, 20-1 others.
