Trainer Roger Fell and jockey Tony Hamilton took the honours at Beverley with a 66-1 brace courtesy of Zylan and Zihaam.

It was double delight for Fell as he also owns Zylan, who got the ball rolling when making all the running in the Watch Racing Live Racing And Bet With Racing UK Handicap.

Smartly out of the stalls from a wide berth, the 14-1 chance was able to move across and grab the rail under a smart ride from Hamilton. The pair were challenged all the way up the straight, but kept on stoutly to score by a neck from Mujassam.

“I told Tony not to disappoint the horse and to let him just get on with it,” said Fell.

“He was able to dictate and loved it.”

Zihaam (7-2) wore down long-time leader Be Perfect to claim the Malcolm Greenslade Doncaster LVA Stalwart Memorial Handicap by half a length.

“He stuck at it well and was given a grand ride from Tony,” said Fell.

“He’s in at Carlisle (on Wednesday), but he probably won’t go there. There’s a race for him at York on Saturday, though, that we might look at.”

Maifalki (7-1) rallied in tremendous style to get back up in the dying strides and deny Zlatan by a neck for trainer Jason Ward in the Alec Scotter’s 70th Birthday Handicap.

Harrison Shaw was in the saddle as intended rider Mark Crehan was hurt in a fall at Chepstow on Monday.

“My lad (Crehan) had a bad fall at Chepstow, but he (Shaw) gave him a great ride. I told him to be patient on him and he did everything right.

“I was a bit worried the ground would be a bit lively for him, but he handled it well.”

Victory Command (1-14 favourite) had little more than an exercise canter to land the odds in the Racing UK In Glorious HD Novice Auction Stakes.

Joe Fanning had hardly to move a muscle as he made all on Mark Johnston’s youngster, to score by nine lengths from Biscuit Queen.

The son of War Command cost only 6,000 guineas and has now won three of six starts and been placed in the other three.

“He’s been fantastic for us and we were hoping he’d win at a canter like that,” said Charlie Johnston, assistant to his father.

“We’ve entered him for the Spindrifter (Pontefract on Monday) and it’s not impossible that he could be there again as he finished second to a good (Richard) Fahey horse (Ninetythreetwenty) there in May.”

Court Of Justice (4-6 favourite) sauntered home in the Racing UK Profits All Returned To Racing Median Auction Maiden Stakes for trainer David Simcock and jockey Paul Mulrennan.

The Mick Easterby-trained Kannapolis (7-4 favourite) got on top in the final half-furlong to win going away by a length and a half under Nathan Evans in the Alan Wilson 90th Birthday Handicap.

“He’ll be a better horse in a year’s time. He’s still a big baby, but he’s a nice horse,” said Easterby’s son and assistant, David.

Nigel Tinkler’s Etienne Gerard (5-1) left it late under Faye McManoman to pip Moonlit Sands by a short head in the Go Racing In Yorkshire Future Stars Apprentice Handicap.
