Racing: Fallon Tightens Hold in Title Race


Byline: Ray Gilpin at York

Kieren Fallon put an iron grip on the jockeys' championship with a power-packed treble at York on Saturday, but will not accept that the title is in safe-keeping until it is impossible for him to be caught.

The three-timer on Avonbridge, Talbot Avenue and Blue Star was a demonstration of his sheer strength and will-to-win.

Fallon was taking his score to 135 during the confines of the turf season, which determines the championship, and he has drawn 16 ahead of Richard Hughes, but in essence his lead is only 14.

A four-timer at Pontefract on Monday was followed by doubles at Catterick on Tuesday and York on Thursday and a single back on the Knavesmire on Friday has made it a round dozen for the week. But he reasoned: 'It looks as if I am going to lose two wins I had on Elusive City (prohibited substances were found in routine tests on the Gerard Butler-trained colt after he had won at Lingfield and Goodwood) and they could be costly.

The campaign ends on November 9, and there are 24 days left on which there is Flat racing, but the four-times champion will be absent on four of those days as he is due to partner Golan at the Breeders' Cup meeting in Chicago on Saturday week.

After Blue Star had prevailed to complete his three-timer Fallon explained: 'I will be going out to Arlington on the Wednesday before the Breeders' Cup, so the bigger the lead I can get before I leave the better it will be.

'I have never ridden there, so I want to get as much experience of the course as I can on the Thursday, on the turf and the dirt tracks, and hopefully get a race ride or two on the Friday. …
