Snow Latern, trained by Richard Hannon Jnr, avenged her dam’s unlucky defeat in the Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes after 8 years of pain for connections.
She stayed on brilliantly in the final stages of the Group 1 on the July course under a ice-cool ride by her jockey Sean Levey. The filly looked trapped for much of the race, and it looked like the family’s hoodoo might continue.
However once the gap opened she found plenty of toe for Levey and powered home to glory.
Previously, Snow Lantern had placed second at Royal Ascot staying on from the back in the Coronation Stakes, won eventually by Alcohol Free. Snow Lantern reversed that form however this time and landed a brilliant Group 1 for the Wiltshire team.
