Saturday at Epsom
All the action as it happened from the second day of the Derby meeting at Epsom.

Kieren Fallon completed a superb double when the joint-favourite North Light wins the Derby after the jockey's Oaks victory on Ouija Board on Friday.

The victory gave Fallon his third Derby win and his second in a row after Kris Kin's success twelve months ago.

3. Lafi (Alex Greaves) 14-1
4. Jayanjay (K McEvoy) 16-1
17 ran. Dist: 1, nk

Paul Hanagan finishes the Derby meeting on a high with a decisive victory on the Dandy Nicholls-trained Native Title.

Native Title took up the running with a furlong to go and pulled clear with Mutawaqed taking second in a photo-finish ahead of another Nicholls horse Lafi.

Kieren Fallon managed to hold off the challenge of Frankie Dettori for his third winner of the day in an exciting finale.

Fallon, riding Starry Lodge and Dettori, on the favourite Swift Tango fought out a tremendous climax after overtaking Putra Sandhurst in the final couple of furlongs with Fallon just getting the edge.

1620 - Vodafone Derby Stakes (1m 4f)
1. North Light (K Fallon) 7-2jf
2. Rule of Law (K McEvoy) 20-1
3. Let the Lion Roar (M Kinane) 14-1
14 ran. Dist: 1, hd

North Light puts in a superb run to give jockey Kieren Fallon and trainer Sir Michael Stoute back-to-back Derby wins and ensures Fallon a Classic double after Friday's Oaks victory.

Fallon went for home a long time out after sitting on the shoulder of Aidan O'Brien's Yeats while both American Post and Percussionist stayed in touch.

But there were no doubts about North Light's stamina as he swept to victory by just over a length.

Both Rule of Law, ridden by Australian Kerrin McEvoy, and Let the Lion Roar, ridden by Michael Kinane, finished fast to fill the minor places in a repeat of the first three in the Dante Stakes.

1530 - Vodafone 'Dash' Stakes (5f)
1. Caribbean Coral (R Winston) 20-1
2. Plateau (M Hills) 25-1
3. Tychy (JP Spencer) 20-1
4. Texas Gold (Martin Dwyer) 16-1
20 ran. Dist: Sh-hd, nk

Caribbean Coral, ridden by Robert Winston, kept going well to get the better of Plateau in a dramatic finish and give the jockey his 30th win of the season.

The 20-strong field set off at a strong pace and with a furlong to go, it was anyone's race.

But Winston got his mount through from way back to win well.

1500 - Vodafone Diomed Stakes (1m 114yds)
1. Passing Glance (Martin Dwyer) 20-1
2. Dutch Gold (D Holland) 33-1
3. Gateman (K Dalgleish) 8-1
11 ran. Dist: 1, hd

Passing Glance put in a superb display of front-running to win the Diomed Stakes.

Martin Dwyer's mount, trained by Andrew Balding, went off strongly and was about four lengths clear at Tattenham Corner.

The rest of the field moved to challenge in the final furlong, led by Dutch Gold and Darryll Holland, they stayed on well for victory.

1430 - Vodafone Woodcote Stakes (6f)
1. Screwdriver (R Hughes) 7-2
2. Royal Island (K Dalgleish) 6-5f
3. Gortumblo (T Quinn) 12-1
8 ran. Dist: nk, 4

Richard Hughes on Screwdriver and Keith Dalgleish on Royal Island fought out a great battle to the line.

Hughes and his mount led for much of the race and broke away but Royal Island mounted a strong challenge and momentarily took the lead.

But Hughes didn't give up and Screwdriver gave one last push to win by a neck.

1400 - Vodafone Live! Stakes (1m 2f)
1. Lord Mayor (K Fallon) 11-2
2. Royal Warrant (Martin Dwyer) 16-1
3. Mystical Girl (D Holland) 10-1
4. Dancing Lyra (T Quinn) 6-1
18 ran. Dist: 1, hd

Kieren Fallon swoops late on to edge out his rivals and take the opening race on the second day at Epsom.

Darryll Holland and Mystical Girl looked set for victory when they kicked for home in the home straight but they faded badly in the closing half-furlong.

But the experienced Fallon guides his horse through from way back and urges him home for a good victory.
