Punk Rock Mutley became the biggest priced winner in the history of the Ladbrokes Golden Jacket when taking the £12,500 Category One event at 33-1.

Rated as ‘a decent minor open racer who would need a bit of luck and crowding’ by trainer Stuart Maplesden, the sole wide runner also showed tremendous track craft and tenacity – at one stage finding himself on the inside of middle seed Ragtime Storm – before giving his trainer and owner Mat Christelow their greatest success to date.

Odds on favourite Bo Shine Bullet completed the course after missing her break and being knocked over at the first bend.
