O'Brien grabs the Fame and Glory

Fame And Glory gave Aidan O'Brien his fourth win in the Coronation Cup at Epsom with a battling display under Johnny Murtagh.
The four-year-old, sent off the 5-6 favourite having finished second to Sea The Stars in the Derby here 12 months ago, was handily placed throughout as his stablemate Dixie Music cut out the early running.
As he dropped away, last year's Oaks winner Sariska loomed up as a major danger and the two of them settled down to fight it out.
Sariska looked like sweeping past at the top of the straight, but Fame And Glory was not for passing and he found more in the final furlong to pass the post a length and a half ahead.
