Andrew Balding: Trains Miss Cap Estel

Andrew Balding's Miss Cap Estel caused a surprise result in the Listed Betfred Mobile/E.B.F. Stallions Gillies Fillies' Stakes at Doncaster.

The 25/1 chance stayed on well under David Probert to deny joint 9/2 favourites Cocktail Queen and Cushion.

Amulet took them along but was headed in the straight by Roger Varian's Princess Loulou who hit the front a quarter of a mile from home.

However, it was all change in the closing stages as first Cocktail Queen and then Miss Cap Estel hit the front, the latter staying there despite tiring late on.

Cushion was a never-nearer third, staying on well under William Buick to get in the places.

Winning jockey David Probert said: "We didn't have a great draw in 18 but it allowed me to drop her out and fill her up and let her find her own way home.

"I'm not sure what happened in France, but she enjoyed it today."

Balding added: "I don't know what went wrong last time, I had no confidence coming here but Chris Bonner, my assistant, said to have a go and she's done it nicely.

"She's in the December Sales so we'll see what happens."
