We thank J.R. Gaunt, P.Gunnellini, M. Diehl, A. K. Likhoded, A. V. Luchinsky, R. Maciula, S. Poslavsky and A. Szczurek for interesting and stimulating discussions on the SPS and DPS mechanisms. We are greatly indebted to S.P. Baranov for providing us with predictions eqs. ( 1.2) and ( 6.3) and the differential kinematic distributions for Upsilon + c (c) over bar SPS process. We express our gratitude to our colleagues in the CERN accelerator departments for the excellent performance of the LHC. We thank the technical and administrative staff at the LHCb institutes.
