On My Command (7-4) trained by Harry Fry and ridden by J.J. Burke and Alan King trained Senior Citizen (9-2) under Adrian Hesketh returned a 15-1 double at Market Rasen.

Dubai Hope (7-2) and Hasty Sailor (7-4) returned a fromthehorsesmouth.info 12-1 double at Wolverhampton.

Al Kherb (4-9) and Dr. R. Newland trained Rebel Leader (2-1) ridden by Charlie Hammond returned a 4-1 double at Stratford.

Escobar (16-1) tipped each-way finished sixth in the Qipco Balmoral Handicap at Ascot, with Skybet paying six places.

Eric Alston trained Redrosezorro tipped each-way at Catterick finished second behind Dark Shot,  beaten 1/2 length, heavily backed from 20-1 on Thursday, returning at 6-1.

Eshaada, trained by Roger Varian, beat Albaflora in a photo-finish in the Qipco British Champions Fillies and Mares Group 1 at Ascot on, ridden by Jim Crowley.

“Her only poor performance was at York and the Ribblesdale form worked out very well.

“She loves cut in the ground, she’s got track form and has always looked a class filly.

“After York we discussed what we’d do. There were options between York and this race but we said: ‘Let’s wait’.

“She likes cut in the ground, so it was a team decision made in the immediate aftermath of the York race and it’s always nice when a plan comes together.

“I thought she was a touch overpriced (16-1) coming into the race – but we were happy with her condition. She had to be very tough in the final two furlongs and really stuck her neck out.

“We’d love to have her around for another year. She’s a great, big scopey filly, she’s lightly raced and you’d like to think her best days are ahead of her.”

Albaflora trainer Ralph Beckett said: “She went out on her shield didn’t she?

“The jockey felt she got upsides and the camera angles looked like she did, but I’m not sure she ever got in front. It was just a very good horse race and we have no excuses, we were beaten by a better filly on the day.

“Ms Rausing likes to race her horses and has three sisters at home, so we’ll see what we do, but it would make sense to keep going with her.”

Aidan O’Brien trained dual Oaks winner Snowfall (8-11) under Ryan Moore flopped, finishing third on her reappearance after finishing sixth in the Arc de Triomphe  on October 3.

“She ran an okay race – but you’d be disappointed she didn’t win,” ruled OBrien.

“Ryan said he’d have preferred the pace to have been a little stronger early on, but there you go.”
