MUHTARRAM finished third in the Arlington Million in Chicago yesterday. Ridden by Willie Carson, the Newmarket-trained horse was sent off a 4-1 chance.

Paradise Creek, the home- trained 9-5 favourite, came with a strong run on the outside to win inside the final furlong. Fanmore was three- quarters of a length back in second, with Muhtarram another length away in third. French hope Petit Loup was fourth and Clive Brittain's Spartan Shareef, seventh.

Colonel Collins, having his last run for Peter Chapple- Hyam, finished eighth, though beaten by only two lengths, in the Secretariat Stakes won by 52-10 chance Vaudeville.
