Team Talk does the trick
A good day for Saeed bin Suroor got even better when Team Talk finished fast and late to win the Betway Churchill Stakes at Lingfield Park.
Saeed bin Suroor landed the Churchill Stakes
The Godolphin handler had already enjoyed pattern race victory in Australia before the Teofilo gelding provided Bin Suroor with back-to-back victories in the Listed race.
Sent off at 6/1, the three-year-old was held-up in rear by Sean Levey on his third career start as Berkshire made the running with Metropol and Flambeuse tracking.
The order barely changed for the first six furlongs but turning into the straight, the field had started to jockey for position and Educate was challenging three deep.
He and Metropol appeared to have the race between them as they straightened up for home with even money favourite Grendisar struggling to pick up.
Master The World eventually found his stride and began to close but Team Talk swept down the outside under Levey, displaying a smart turn of foot.
The winning distances were half a length and the same with Educate holding on for second from Master The World.
