Hayley Turner gained her biggest victory since coming out of retirement with a power-packed ride on Ripp Orf in the totescoop6 Victoria Cup at Ascot.

The former champion apprentice and Group One-winning jockey brought the David Elsworth-trained gelding to snatch victory close home.

Turner had to starve herself to do the required 8st 1lb on the bottom weight and it paid off as Ripp Orf (20-1) defeated the top weight Zhui Feng (28-1) by a neck. Sea Fox (40-1) was third and Sabador (9-1) fourth.

“That was amazing. What a legend of a horse,” Turner told ITV Racing.

“They gave me some good orders to ride the horse with confidence.

“The big field suited him and a strong gallop. He just liked weaving through them.

“I’ll be looking forward to my dinner.”

Barsanti (10-11 favourite) had to work hard to justify strong market support in the Carey Group Buckhounds Stakes on his first run for 301 days.

The six-year-old pulled out all the stops to hold Mirage Dancer by a neck after the pair battled it out in the closing stages.

Jockey Andrea Atzeni said: “He’s very straightforward. Before the race, we weren’t sure about the pace, but we went a good gallop for the first part of the race and I was always pretty confident.

“He’s in the Coronation Cup. It’s usually a small field. I think he’s a better horse this year.”
