Dice springs surprise
Scatter Dice sprang a 66-1 shock despite being very slowly away in the Betfred Cesarewitch at Newmarket.
The Mark Johnston-trained filly lost many lengths to the rest of the field at the start but, galvanised by a first-time visor, she made up the ground to take the two-and-a-quarter-mile stamina test.
While Scatter Dice was well behind, up front Merchant Of Dubai, Albert Bridge and Sohar cut out the running until the race gathered momentum from four furlongs out.
Silvestre de Sousa brought Scatter Dice on the wide outside to make her challenge. She stormed past Lieutenant Miller inside the final furlong and went on to win by three lengths from Waterclock (20-1).
Lieutenant Miller (10-1) was half a length away in third and Chiberta King (20-1) fourth.
"It's unbelievable. She's such a trier. She a visor on for the first time but she was just a bit sleepy (in the stalls). She's done really well," de Sousa told Channel 4 Racing.
Johnston, winning the race for a third time, said: "She's had a long, hard season but has run well on so many occasions.
"She's going to retire at the end of the year, that was the plan anyway, so I suppose this was her last chance.
"She's run a couple of strange races recently, dropping herself out, so I was a bit concerned in the first half of the race that she was all right but then I saw her hanging in with the pack. I saw her coming from a quite a long way out."
