It proved a Royal Ascot to remember for West Ilsley trainer Mick Channon as long-shots Nijoom Dubai and Championship Point gave him a monster double.

The former Southampton and England footballer had been out of luck on the first three days of Flat racing's most prestigious fixture.

However, his luck turned in spectacular style on Friday.

Nijoom Dubai was sent off an unconsidered 50-1 outsider for the Group 3 Albany Stakes after being beaten at Folkestone on her previous outing.

But the two-year-old filly defied those odds in stunning fashion with a length and a quarter victory under Jamie Spencer from hot favourite You'reso- thrilling.

Channon said: "She got beat at Folkestone where the race was a total mess - she went one side and a load went the other.

"She was still very green, but she's as good as I've got, so I thought I'd give it a go.

The day got even better for Channon when Championship Point bounced back to form to spring a 25-1 shock in the Wolferton Handicap - and complete a massive 1,325-1 double.

Darryll Holland brought the four-year-old with a perfectly-timed run down the outside to beat Heaven Sent by a length.

And Channon said: "(Running in) the Derby last year really messed him up. He was a wreck after the race and it's taken him a long time to get his act together.

I think the rain helped.

The West Ilsley trainer was also on the mark with Silca Elegance, who got off the mark in the hands of Tadgh O'Shea in a six-furlong maiden at Redcar.

East Ilsley trainer Hughie Morrison, who suffered the agony of seeing Intrepid Jack pipped in the Wokingham Stakes at Royal Ascot, recorded a dramatic success with Sohraab at Newmarket.

The three-year-old initially finished a head second to Fathom Five in a five-furlong handicap.

But he was promoted to first after the stewards decided Fathom Five's rider, Philip Robinson, was guilty of improper riding in that he purposefully failed to modify his whip action to prevent Sohraab passing him.

Robinson was hit with a four-day ban, and Sohraab's rider, Robert Havlin, was suspended for seven days for improper riding after appearing to strike Fathom Five after the runners had passed the post.

Morrison completed a double on the day with Kasumi at Lingfield.

It was a real family success as the four-year-old, who was powered home by Travis Block in the extended seven-furlong handicap, is owned by Morrison's sister, Lady Trenchard.

The East Ilsley handler and Block also teamed up to score with Palmetto Point in a mile handicap at Warwick.

Gerard Butler's decision to send Rhuepunzel to Beverley from his Blewbury stables, near Didcot, was rewarded when Hayley Turner's mount opened her account in a mile maiden.

Hook Norton trainer Peter Hiatt worked the oracle with Ceredig, who finally broke his duck at the 29th attempt with victory in a Lingfield seller.

The four-year-old, who was previously trained by Neville Callaghan and Willie Muir, was bought by Epsom trainer Linda Mongan at the subsequent auction for 8,000 guineas.

And Paul Cole, who trains at Whatcombe, near Wantage, was among the Wolverhampton winners with Trans Siberian, who took a mile maiden.
