Beat Le Bon too strong at Goodwood
Beat Le Bon won his third successive race after crossing the line first in the Unibet Golden Mile at Glorious Goodwood.
The Richard Hannon-trained three-year-old was a 17/2 shout in a competitive field and came out on top after a storming final few furlongs in the hands of Pat Dobbs.
His good run started on the same course in May when he triumphed in the Betfair Each Way Edge Handicap and followed up at Haydock in the bet365.com Handicap last month.
After the race, Hannon said: "He's always been a good horse. I've always talked about how good he is and he has slightly made me look a bit silly. Slowly, as time has gone on, he is starting to look like that horse.
"I did think he was a Guineas horse last year. Early on in the year his work was not normal and we are starting to see it now.
"There is every chance he could come back here for the Celebration Mile (August 24)."
