Closing on the front-running Geisha Girl approaching the final turn, On Call was soon in front in the straight and won by one and a half lengths.
Ebadiyla, conceding 24lb to the winner, started at 9-10 but her defeat did not shock her trainer, John Oxx. "She probably needed the run," he said. "She came to win her race, blew up and I am not too disappointed."
Prescott admitted that On Call, who started at 8-1, had run the race of her life. "We brought her here just to get placed in a Listed race, never dreaming she would beat a dual-Classic winner like Ebadiyla.
"Mrs Chris O'Reilly's racing manager James Kelly persuaded me we should let her have a crack at this one - I had a nice little race at Pontefract on Tuesday in mind myself," the trainer added.Reuse content
