One of five runners for the Malton handler, which also included the well-backed favourite Maggies Angel, there was only one horse in it from some way out.

With two furlongs to run Barry McHugh kicked him into a clear advantage and he drew further and further clear, with the 12-1 chance winning by six lengths.
Declarationoflove stayed on to take second for Tom Clover, with Maggies Angel eventually picking up third place.
Fahey won the valuable prize in 2012 with Peniaphobia and Lathom two years ago.
McHugh said: “He’d go again, what a star of a horse he is, to travel in that ground and win like he did.
“I came down with Richard in the car and I was worried about the filly (Maggies Angel), but this lad has tightened up a hell of a lot since his break and he wasn’t a no hoper.

“This is what it’s all about for owners now, to get one at a reasonable price and win a pot like this – it pays for his way and a few others.”
Fahey said: “It looks like he likes that ground! He’d been working well and had some solid form.
“It’s a race we target every year, and we’ve won it three out of the last five now.”
He added: “I said the day we bought him he’d win the Weatherbys Super Sprint, it’s not often you can say that.”
