Racing: White's winning move

MUKHAMEDOV showed that work on the Heath can lose something in the translation to the racecourse when he struggled home behind White Crown in the Solario Stakes at Sandown yesterday.

Henry Cecil's colt is reported to beat the ante-post 2,000 Guineas and Derby favourite Tenby on the home gallops but the 2-1 favourite beat only one home yesterday.

White Crown will now go for Ascot's Royal Lodge Stakes. 'It was a pleasing performance,' Ben Hanbury, his trainer, said. Walter Swinburn, the winning jockey, added: 'He's on the upgrade and it is good to be associated with a horse like him.'
