Rifles shoots down oppositionHeadlines
Eton Rifles

Stuart Williams' decision to bypass Ascot's Champions Sprint paid off when Eton Rifles took the 'Betfred Bonus King Bingo' Wentworth Stakes at Doncaster.

The Newmarket trainer felt the seven-year-old (7-1) was unlucky in this Listed contest 12 months ago and Eton Rifles made amends with a length verdict over Ultransonic in the hands of William Carson.

"He had a nice run through the race, but he was a close third to Mince and Soul last time and if you had put them in this race with that weight they would have been favourites," said Williams.

"We saved him for this race. We could have gone to Ascot for the Group Two, but we thought we'd come here and hopefully win.

"He was very unlucky in this race last year just after we bought him. He's a superstar for a yard my size.

"He didn't have much racing in his younger years and he's very genuine. We might come back here for the Cammidge Trophy in the spring."

The Dandy Nicholls-trained Desert Creek (6-1) gave Shirley Teasdale her 19th winner in division one of the Betfred 'Bigger And Better' Goals Galore Apprentice Handicap, but the rider was banned for two days (November 24 and 26) for careless riding.

Chookie Royale (13-2 favourite) took division two for trainer and former jockey Keith Dalgleish in the hands of Jason Hart.

Matthew Hopkins, rider of the third Fame Again, was banned for a total of six days (November 24 and 26-30) for careless riding and using his whip above the permitted level.
