Came From The Dark was perhaps a little unlucky not to win the Group 3 Palace House Stakes at Newmarket last time out, but he made amends for that at Sandown, powering up the hill to get home in front by a neck.   

Alpinista proved a worthy favourite in the Group 2 Lancashire Oaks at Haydock Park, scoring 30 points for TTF player Graham Barton.

The feature race at Sandown was made up of a small, but talented field. Saudi Cup winner Mishriff travelled through the race well, but St Mark's Basilica cemented his position as one of the best around driving clear to win by three and a half lengths. As a TTF bonus race this result scored 55 points for 32 teams.          

Mervyn Broom remains at the top of the table on 275 points. With three cracking days of racing starting at Newmarket and 'Super Saturday' coming up this weekend things look sure to change. Full standings can be viewed here.
