Racing: Millenium displays his Derby potential
Thursday 29 October 1998
The David Loder-trained but Godolphin-bound Dubai Millennium, a two-year- old with a towering reputation, strolled to the forefront of the Derby ante-post picture after his five-length thrashing of Tabareeh in a maiden race over one mile. Frankie Dettori, on his final British ride of the year, barely moved a muscle on the son of Seeking The Gold who is now 16-1 for Epsom with William Hill.
Jahaam initiated a double for Dettori and Loder in the first division of the seven-furlong maiden and is 33-1 for the 2,000 Guineas with Hills. "I think Jahaam could be a Classic prospect," Loder said. "He's only done two bits of work." Ballet Master came home seven lengths clear in the second division of that race and is 20-1 for the Guineas with Coral.
Robert Thornton was taken to hospital for X-rays on his back following a fall from American Style at Cheltenham yesterday. The course doctor, John Disney, said: "He has perfect movement and there appears to be no neurological damage."
Today's card at Nottingham has been abandoned due to waterlogging, while prospects are improving at Stratford where there will be a precautionary inspection at 7am.
