Roaring Lion can profit in Eclipse from Masar's withdrawal

Roaring Lion prevails in a thriller over Saxon Warrior | Racing Post

An hour before England's footballers kicked off in the World Cup and with the Sandown grandstand blasting out "Three Lions" as the runners were loaded into the stalls, the John Gosden-trained Roaring Lion cut down Saxon Warrior in a thriller.

The summer showpiece may have lost some of its gloss after the withdrawal of Derby victor Masar on Friday evening, but the QIPCO British Champions Series contest still served up a finish to savour as the John Gosden-trained son of Kitten's Joy finally came good on his fourth outing at the highest level.

Though Murphy was clearly relieved to keep the race, he believed it was a fair result, praised the Gosden team for teaching Roaring Lion to settle better on his races and spoke about the confidence provided by the trainer when discussing tactics.

Roaring Lion travelled as well as anything in the Derby last time but found a still stiffer test of stamina beyond him as he faded... This is what I've wanted to be achieving. He wasn't here, but we still got a hell of a race.

"Sheikh Fahad (of owner Qatar Racing) buys and breeds horses that are supposed to be brilliant, but as we all know from the other big organisations, they are hard to find and we have one now".

Saxon Warrior holds entries over various distances in races such as the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes, the Sussex Stakes, the Juddmonte International and the Irish Champion Stakes.

In what developed into precisely the head to head that the betting anticipated the pair served up a treat in a climax that saw them finish clear of last year's Derby runner-up Cliffs Of Moher.

"This is at the top of my achievements". It was a very good run though and I'm delighted. I'm sure we'll see the second there and with any luck we'll see Masar there too. "I just had to get it right and not get there too soon. That will be some horse race". "A week after having a tough race in the Irish Derby he's run a blinder", the jockey told At The Races. "We have plenty of options for him, now". "He doesn't pull, and so he didn't need cover, but it very was good race riding from Wayne [Lordan, on Happily]". "The smaller the field the trickier it gets, but he wasn't going to get himself in any trouble and I thought he timed his run perfectly".
