The only way is Essex as Bin Suroor puts Derby hopes on show

Best Solution just masters Dubai Thunder (far side) with Youmkin (near) in their Chelmsford gallop
1 of 2

It was a gallops morning with a difference for our Newmarket correspondent David Milnes on Saturday, as he travelled to Chelmsford to keep tabs on a nap hand of Saeed Bin Suroor's stable stars

Best Solution Neil Pollard

Pollard never rode a winner at the Essex track as a jockey when it was known as Great Leighs but had his nose in front this time on the Lingfield Derby Trial winner. Breezing ten furlongs with fellow Derby hope Dubai Thunder and lead horse Youmkin, Best Solution looks a professional, as you would expect from a horse who also ran in Dubai. Pollard reported: "We had a nice strong canter round and if they get the rain at Epsom he would go there with a big chance."

Dubai Thunder Kieren Fallon

As a three-time Derby winner Fallon knows all about the race, and he gave the recent ten-length Newbury scorer some education on just his second visit to a racecourse. Wearing a hood in preliminaries, the son of Dubawi was settled last in his exercise before moving up in the straight to finish on the flanks of Best Solution. Fallon, whose last ride at the track was a winner for Simon Dow in 2015, said: "He's definitely a Derby horse. He won so easily at Newbury but he was still a bit babyish, so Saeed thought it would be a good idea to give him more experience." 

Prize Money Adrian McCarthy

McCarthy has not long joined the Godolphin ranks and was coming full circle on the four-year-old, as he rode his Derby-winning sire Authorized in all his work in his days with Peter Chapple-Hyam. A conqueror of Postponed in Dubai in the winter, Prize Money went best in a strong ten-furlong exercise with Beautiful Romance and Move Up and is booked for the Coronation Cup at Epsom on Friday. The rider said: "Prize Money worked well but he's even better on grass and seems to go on any ground. Hopefully he can run a nice race at Epsom."

Chelmsford: stages its most valuable fixture ever on Saturday

Beautiful Romance Matthew Lawson & Move Up Chris Catlin

This pair finished just behind Prize Money, but that was the plan as they are both heading for Royal Ascot next month. Beautiful Romance, who finished well in front of recent Sandown winner Big Orange at Meydan last time, never shines on the Newmarket gallops but looked better here. Bin Suroor said: "The plan is to take Beautiful Romance to the Ascot Gold Cup, while Move Up may head for the Hardwicke Stakes."
