THE WEEK'S WINNERS Jockey: Claire West, who was unseated when Captain Carat tried to duck under the stalls before the Pontefract Apprentice Series (Round 1) Handicap at Pontefract on Tuesday. Far from being perturbed, she fairly sprinted back behind the stalls to get back in the saddle. In the race, she produced Captain Carat, who has to be held up for a late effort, with a lovely run on the far rails to lead close home.

Trainer: Luca Cumani, who produced the five-year-old Suplizi to win the Langthorpe Stakes at Ripon on Saturday after an absence of 641 days

Horse: Master Charter, who was last turning for home in the Pontefract Park Handicap at Pontefract last Tuesday but made up ten lengths in the last furlong to win by an easy two lengths. He is now 6-1 favourite for Wednesday's Victoria Cup at Ascot
