TONY Cruz starts a three-day suspension three winners clear of Basil Marcus and reckons he needs 'a miracle' to win the jockeys' championship. ''I'm not fooling myself. I am three clear now but Basil has a lot of good rides, horses with real potential. He is going to make up the difference. ''I reckon I need a miracle to win it,'' said Cruz, who has no intention of taking a quick break during the ban. ''No way. I will be at the track every day and I am looking for the best possible rides for the last two days. I am going to make a fight of it.'' Marcus cut the lead to three winners when Active King beat the Cruz-ridden My Silvero in Race Five. Darren Beadman, back in action a fortnight after his horrific fall from the ill-fated Rainbow Connection, came within a head of a comeback victory on Simply Great in the second event. But he is now looking forward to a full book of eight rides at Saturday's meeting including a vitally important one in the Queen Mother's Cup. Beadman has been engaged by Patrick Biancone for My Home Town, who finished third to River Verdon in the Champions and Chater Cup. Beadman partnered Motivation for retaining John Moore in the Champions but lost the ride on Tuesday. He now has an excellent chance of turning the tables on Motivation. ''It's a great ride as at the weights he has to have a real chance. I am getting something like 19lb and we only beat My Home Town home by about half a length in the Champions.''
