Yarmouth long price specialist Christine Dunnett promised more shocks beside the seaside after Speedyfix sprung a 25/1 shock on Tuesday.
Under a driving ride from Jimmy Quinn the injury jinxed five-year-old travelled well throughout to beat the well backed Autocracy and Mikael Barzelona.
He's had so many problems that despite him only being a five-year-old I had considered retiring the old boy.Christine Dunnett
Dunnett has made a habit of finding horses to go in at decent prices, including a 100/1 shock a few years back, and afterwards she said: "I have a nice crop at home, so hopefully we will have one or two more."
She explained that Speedyfix had been out of action for a year after breaking a hock and that she has come close to retiring the horse on one or two occasions.
The hose has only won once previously and will now be kept in training with the hope of better things ahead in the future, with the Dunnett adding: "I knew he was capable of this, but was worried the ground might have dried out a bit too much.
"He's had so many problems that despite him only being a five-year-old I had considered retiring the old boy, so I couldn't be more delighted for him."
Meanwhile, Camelot is 1.40 to win September's St Leger, with Great Heavens 1000.00 and Main Sequence 8.50.
