MOBSTA gave Mick Channon a big-race winner on FA Cup final day – 40 years after the West Ilsley trainer helped Southampton lift the famous trophy with a shock 1-0 win over Manchester United.

Appreciating the rain-softened ground, the 14-1 shot stuck on gamely under Pat Smullen to pip Flight Risk by a head in the Group 2 Weatherbys Ireland Greenland Stakes at the Curragh.

Paul Cole, who trains at Whatcombe, near Wantage, landed a notable 162-1 across-the-card cross-Channel treble with Honiara (11-10) at Chantilly, Azilian (11-2) at Wolverhampton and Tioga Pass (11-1) at Goodwood.

Christophe Soumillon was on board as Honiara claimed a mile maiden stakes at the French track, while Martin Harley steered Azilian to a four-length success in a handicap in the West Midlands, before Luke Morris powered Tioga Pass home by a neck in a handicap at the Sussex venue.

Chipping Norton trainer Charlie Longsdon sent out the almost white grey Ready Token to be a popular winner on ladies’ day at Warwick.

Jumping boldly at the head of affairs in a three-mile handicap chase, the eight-year-old romped home by 13 lengths from Allow Dallow under Aidan Coleman.

Ben Case’s Edgcote stables, near Banbury, landed a brace of bumper winners with Oski at Southwell and First Drift at Worcester – both ridden by amateur jockey Max Kendrick.
