The Independent Online
Favourites: 10 out of 29 won producing a loss to a level pounds 1 stake of pounds 3.45.

Winner at longest price: Senor El Betrutti, 66-1, at Ascot to give Susan Nock, who trains just four horses under permit, her second winner from five runners.

Winner at longest Tote odds: Swanbister, who took the bumper at Haydock at a starting-price of 25-1, produced a spectacular return of 205.5-1 with the machine.

Shortest-priced loser: Mysilv, at 1-2, finished second to Pridwell in Ascot's Knights Royal Hurdle. "Jamie Osborne said she was beaten in Swinley Bottom," Charlie Egerton, her trainer, reported.

Worst Tote odds: Long-priced winners at the major tracks often produce excellent Tote returns, so the failure to better Senor El Betrutti's 66- 1 SP with a Tote return of 60.3-1 is disappointing.

Tote Placepots: Ascot (6 placed favourites) pounds 9.50; Catterick (4 placed favourites) pounds 163.10; Haydock (4 placed favourites) pounds 15.70; Uttoxeter (4 placed favourites) pounds 89.60.

Jackpot: Paid pounds 7,100.00 at Haydock, with a carry-over of pounds 4,173.00 to Lingfield today.

Jockey: Richard Dunwoody, who picked Unguided Missile's head off the floor at the last fence to win Saturday's Betterware Cup. "Only Dunwoody could have recovered his horse so well," Terry Casey, the trainer of the runner-up, Rough Quest, said.

Trainer: Peter Walwyn, who took on the responsibility as one of the senior members of his profession and was the first to ask - as many others silently wanted to - for Matthew McCloy, the chairman of the British Horseracing Board's Industry Committee, to explain fully the circumstances of his trip to New York in which he was handcuffed to his seat by airline staff and charged subsequently with disorderly conduct.

Horse: Myfavouritemartian, who beat some previous winners in a novice hurdle at Thurles on Thursday and is rated Cheltenham material by his trainer, Mouse Morris.
