Queally: Won aboard Haajes

Haajes (9-1) won the closing Goffs/DBS St Leger Carnival Sales Handicap at Doncaster.

Tom Queally got a fine tune out of the seven-year-old inside the final furlong and eventually won the contest by three-quarters-of-a-length from Eland Ally (14-1).

Lujeanie (9-1) stayed on for third with Indian Trail (14-1) taking fourth as they bunched up in behind the winner for the places.

Rocket Rob did all of his best work late on but could only manage fifth.

Winning trainer Paul Midgley said: "We were worried the ground wasn't soft enough for him but Tom (Queally) gave us a little more confidence before the first by saying it was just on the slow side of good.

"We knew they'd go quick and just hoped the headwind would slow them down in the last quarter.

"I was a little concerned because they've split into two groups, he's ended up in the smaller one and ideally wants something to aim at.

"He's done it great and won't be going to Hamilton now! There's a nice race he won at York later on and we'll go anywhere there's a bit of dig in the ground and try and win a decent prize."
