By Andrew Atkinson racing correspondent

FANNY By Gaslight turned up the heat as burned a hole in bookies’ satchels – as part of a 985-1 six horse winning accumulator!

World Title selection (9-4) from 11-4, KO’d the bookies at Ripon, under jockey Holly Doyle: “He’s a game horse and appreciated the ground.

“He doesn’t do anything too quickly, but he’s showing good promise and stepped up again,” said Doyle, of the Archie Watson trained horse.

“He’s a big horse and learning, one that can improve further for next year. Archie Watson’s horses are flying at the moment,” said Doyle.

At Ripon each-way selections Canford Bay (6-1), Gunmetal (9-2), Teodora de Vega (7-1) were all placed. Isabella Brant (8-13) was a winning selection.
