KIEREN FALLON recorded an 84-1 four-timer at Bath yesterday on Deal Fair, Carhue Lass, Heart and Rada's Daughter.

The Henry Cecil-trained Deal Fair made heavy weather of landing odds of 8-11 in the Tattenham Corner Stakes before getting the better of Culzean by a length and a quarter. Even his owner, Baron Georg von Ullmann, reckoned that Deal Fair would not be good enough to run in the German Derby, though that race may be considered for the colt.

Carhue Lass became the first Irish-trained winner at the hill-top course for many years when making all the running to lift the Listed Lansdown Stakes for her trainer, Patrick O'Leary.

Fallon had also been strongly fancied to lift the Blathwayt Maiden Stakes on Sarangani but the pair had to settle for second behind Roger Charlton's highly regarded Migration.

The Khalid Abdullah-owned colt is 40-1 for the Derby with Coral after getting the better of Fallon's mount by a couple of lengths.

Charlton quickly played down talk of running at Epsom. "He holds a Derby entry but I don't think he'll go there. I will have to talk it over with his owner. He is likely to step up to a mile and a half in a conditions race at Salisbury next month."
