Baccarat comes up trumps
Baccarat wore down Spinatrix close home to grab the William Hill Great St Wilfrid Handicap at Ripon.
Hampered when Bogart unseated his rider at York on his previous start, Richard Fahey's sprinter made amends with a hard-fought success.
The 9-2 favourite, ridden by Tony Hamilton, collared the game Spinatrix (9-1), who had set sail for home on the far side under 5lb claimer Connor Beasley.
The lightly-raced Baccarat, carrying the colours of Sir Robert Ogden, got the verdict by a neck in this prestigious six-furlong handicap.
Rodrigo De Torres (33-1) was third and Regal Parade (40-1) fourth.
Hamilton told At The Races: "He's very unexposed at the trip. He was a bit unlucky the last day (at York).
Paul (Hanagan) thought he would not have been far away if Amy (Ryan) hadn't been unshipped (from Bogart).
"We thought I'd get him out and get a nice pitch, let him find his feet and go from there.
"A few things had gone wrong for him in the past so we had to bag a big one for the owners.
"I suppose he'll get into the Ayr Gold Cup next. He's the right horse to go for that."
