Richard Hannon: bonus bonanza

Bahceli was also the third £10,000 bonus payout for a Middleham Park Racing syndicate, after Jamesway and Bilko Pak - who is also trained by Hannon.

A son of Mujadil, Bahceli is a half-brother to the smart Damien. He was consigned to the DBS St Leger yearling sales by Midlands Farm and bought by agent Ross Doyle for £48,000.

Meanwhile, the first Racing Post Yearling Bonus Maiden in France, today's Prix Epinard at Maisons-Laffitte, failed to be won by an eligible horse - so the £10,000 bonus will be re-allocated to another French race.
