Dubai Acclaim lands Leger Legends prize

Kieren Fallon had to settle for fourth Position since Sammy Jo Bell Chose the spoils aboard Dubai Acclaim from the Mondialiste Leger Legends Classified Stakes.

Six-times champion Flat jockey Fallon, who hung his saddle up gave each opportunity over the straight mile to the Nigel Tinkler-trained Kilbaha Lady, but could get to a winning position.
That honor went to Bell, who is now currently helping her spouse Philip Makin in his own turn from jockey to trainer and gave up riding through trauma in February 2018.
The area had been shot by destroyer combined that raises cash for its National Horseracing College along with Jack Berry House, but has been swamped since the pace.
Inspired by Richard Fahey, Dubai Acclaim (5-1) hit the front and just held the late boom of Noel Fehily on Hammer Gun with a short head in a thrilling end.
Flying Dragon has been three-quarters of a length away in third, together with the following two and a quarter lengths back into Fallon and Kilbaha Lady in fourth.
Fallon – riding for the first time on exactly the identical card as kid Cieren junior – stated:”I thought I was going well enough to triumph, it was when I asked her to quicken she just didn’t allow herself down on the ground.
“I went than anything else and believed I was going to triumph, but we didn’t. It’s all for a good cause, however.”
A thrilled Bell explained:”It turned out very great, I believe I hit the front too soon, but this was just me getting excited.
“I’m very thankful to Richard for giving me a ride and it’s great to cover him back with a winner. I truly loved it.
“I did only hold on, however, this was me going too soon – the horse was helping me out. He was good. The previous time I sat on him was a yearling.
“I’m not as fit as I used to be, I understand that far, but we’re quite busy in the lawn, so I haven’t done as much prep as I’d have liked.”
Fehily, who declared his intention to retire after riding a winner at Cheltenham in March, said:”The trainer told me not to hit the front too soon, but I think I overdid the waiting approaches!
“I got blocked in my hands only over a furlong out and I needed to switch, it probably only cost me, but he’s run a blinder.
“It has been a great occasion for a excellent cause and I’m just delighted to have been requested to take part. Hopefully we have raised lots of money.”
