Breath Temple hero
2-1 favourite Bated Breath won the Betfred Temple Stakes at Haydock under a fine ride from super-sub George Baker.
Roger Charlton's charge followed the early pace and went to the front over a furlong out, in what proved to be a crucial move.
He was followed through by Sole Power (3-1) who closed him down all the way to the line but the winner held a neck advantage at the post.
It was fully three-and-a-half lengths back to Spirit Quartz (14-1) in third with Bated Breath smashing the track record in the process.
Baker said: "I feel a bit sorry for James Doyle as he is banned, but his bad fortune is my good luck. The horse deserved this and hopefully this leads on to better things for him."
