Agent Allison heads a field of 12 fillies declared for the Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes at Newmarket. The racehorse came in as runner-up in the Royal Ascot and will attempt to win the Group 2 flat meeting on Friday.

Peter Chapple-Hyam’s Agent Allison made her debut at Pontefract, and came in second to Newfangled in the Albany Stakes. She’s have to contend with Tom Dascombe’s Premier Steps which came in third at Albany. Horse racing tipsters will also be on the lookout out for Richard Hannon as the latter will stake a pair of unbeatens including City Image and Maureen.

In other news, jockey Graham Watters suffered a broken wrist in a pile-up at Roscommon on Tuesday night. Alan Doyle's mount Lismacbryan Sue slipped over with half a mile remaining. The slip caused a chain reaction which sent Watters and Thunder Hill crashing down, as well as jockey Robert Geoghegan and Jog Along Jack.

Lismacbryan Sue's trainer, Garry Caldwell, told “I went down to the hospital last night and Alan was fine. He was bruised but he'll be okay. Unfortunately Graham Watters had broken his wrist though.”
