Kieren Fallon, fresh from his success on Ouija Board in the Darley Irish Oaks yesterday, added the Group Two Daily Record Scottish Derby to his haul on Kalaman at Ayr yesterday.
However, Fallon was referred to the Jockey Club. A steward saw him using a mobile phone someone had handed him in the parade ring after the race.

The consistent Gateman soon set up a long lead in the 10-furlong test, but the field closed in the straight and Kalaman (5-6) collared him over a furlong out.

Sir Michael Stoute's colt then edged left, causing his rival to be switched right to renew his challenge.

Only a month-and-a-half after the Aga Khan Trust for Culture handed over the 16th century Humayun's Tomb to the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) for maintainence, the tomb is back to its original neglected state.
The sandstone water channels that had been restored for the first time after 40 years, running through the 30-acre Char Bagh, are dry. There are only patches of stagnant water in this 4-km stretch and mostly nothing at all. The caretakers at the site say it has been like this since April. They also point to the unruly grass that is now covering the sandstone pavements.
