Bath: Eddery brace atones for weekend misery.
The double came after the stewards hit him with a one-day ban for careless riding on runner-up Only If I Laugh in the two-year-old race.
The former champion shrugged it off and had to work hard on Pop Gun in the showcase handicap to give Lincoln-winning connections, owner Guy Reed and trainer Barry Hills, another success.
Charles Hills, assistant to his father, said: "That was very pleasing and is our 12th winner of the year."
Ayun considerably enhanced her paddock value for her
owner-breeder Sheikh Hamdan when she romped to victory in the mile maiden to complete Eddery's double.
Sprake witnesses Lady Killer victory
LADY KILLER brought memories flooding back for connections after winning the two-year-old claimer.
Tim Sprake, who suffered bad head injuries in a car crash on an icy road at Christmas over four years ago, was on hand to celebrate the win with owner-breeder Monica Teversham and trainer Bill Turner.
Teversham, who enjoyed success with The Lord last year, said: "Tim used to ride the dam of this filly and won on her. It's lovely to see him here today.
"The dam is ten now, but this is only her second foal, although she is ready to foal any moment now."
