Educate: Doncaster winner

Educate just got the better of Boots And Spurs in the William Hill Spring Mile at Doncaster on Saturday afternoon.

Ismail Mohammed's four-year-old was sent off the 8/1 joint-favourite and he justified that support thanks to a late challenge under Liam Jones.

Cathy Gannon looked to have made a race-winning move a furlong from home when she kicked Boots And Spurs (20/1) clear but he was just overhauled late on, with Haaf A Sixpence (12/1) running on well for third and Patriotic (11/1) fourth.

The winning trainer wasn't at the track due to duties in Dubai, but the victorious rider Jones told At The Races: "He just took his time to pick up but the further he went the better he was. He travelled sweetly, got caught as they quickened but once he got going I knew I was going to get there."
