Chapple-Hyam strikes again
PETER Chapple-Hyam continued his unbeaten start to July as Palus San Marco earned a hard-fought victory over Kampai in the Catering Services International Ltd Maiden Stakes at Brighton.
Telwaar's success in the European Free Handicap at the Craven meeting did not herald a glorious revival for the popular trainer – he has only managed a winner or two in each month since then – but the emergence of the likes of smart juvenile prospect Maxentius show his talent remains honed.
Second on his seasonal reappearance at Nottingham, Palus San Marco (7-4) was pitted against Scottish Vespers, the only ride on the card for William Buick, but Sir Michael Stoute's 4-5 favourite carried his head awkwardly and could only manage third.
Palus San Marco's main challenge came from Kampai, who had been nursed back by Julia Feilden after a long lay-off due to a fractured coccyx, and the 50-1 shot pushed him all the way to the line, giving best by a head.

Chapple-Hyam's assistant, Ronan Meehan, said: "Pete's going really well – I think that's three winners from the last five runners. The owners, who are Italian, hadn't had a winner with us for ages, but Venegazzu won at Wolverhampton for them on Monday, too."
Scommettitrice (15-2) completed a quick course double in division one of the Hardings Catering Handicap.
Carrying a 6lb penalty for her success over half a furlong less just a week ago, David Evans' filly appeared to be struggling for much of this six-furlong contest until the leaders began to toil and Andrea Atzeni sneaked past Captainrisk to score by a nose.
