Report: Kempton, Saturday
Totequadpot Sirenia Stakes (Group 3) 6f, 2yo, all-weather
THE LAST LION proved much the best in this contest as he cleared right away in the final furlong to win by an authoritative four lengths.
The Mark Johnston-trained juvenile was the 11-8 second favourite behind Koropick, but was not for catching once Joe Fanning sent him past front-runner Queensbrydge in the straight. Koropick was second.
Part-owner Megan Dennis said: "He's in at Doncaster [in the Group 2 Flying Childers] and he takes his racing so well you couldn't rule it out."
The Last Lion was cut to 14-1 (from 25) by BetVictor for the Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes next month.

ARAB SPRING relished the drop in grade, having finished down the field in the Juddmonte International last month, to win easily.
The six-year-old raced handily under jockey Jim Crowley and asserted in the final furlong to take the prize for Sir Michael Stoute.
Connections of Robin Of Navan would also have been happy with their charge as he ran a promising second on his first start since the Prix du Jockey Club in early June.
