JEREMY Tree's Paris Review (G Lewis) takes the Cornwallis Stakes at Ascot at 10's from Duncan Keith's Hillandale (G Starkey) and Nigel Angus-trained Larkhill (E Hide). Johnson Houghton's 8-11 fav Rose Bowl (L Piggott) is unplaced.

PETER Walwyn's 20-1 shot May Hill (G Lewis) turns over John Dunlop's Red Lever (R Hutchinson) in the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes. May Hill would progress to upset dual Oaks heroine Juliette Marny and Mr Piggott in the Yorkshire Oaks.

AT York, a blanket finish for the Dragonara Sprint sees Barry Hills Lovelight (B Raymond) touch off Paul Davey's Silver God (J Seagrave) and Eric Cousins Old Penny (S Perks), with Roman Warrrior (T Ives) unplaced.

GINGER McCain's Red Rum humps 12-7 to victory in the Joan Mackay Chase at Ayr under Brian Fletcher. Arthur Stephenson's Scout (T Stack) in receipt of 35lbs, can only get to within 1 1 / 2 lengths of the legend.

20YEARS AGO

THOMSON Jones-trained11-4 fav Doulab (A Murray) scrambles home by a neck in the Cornwallis Stakes from Tommy Fairhurst's Craigside.

ERIC Eldin's Transflash flashes home in York's Coral Sprint at 12's under promising young claimer Tyrone Williams.

ARTHUR Stephenson's Fortina's Express (R Lamb) holds too many cards for Gordon Richards Grand National star Hallo Dandy (N Doughty) in Ayr's Timeform Chase.

CHRIS Grant rides a peach of a race on Denys Smith's newcomer Prince Santiago to take the novices' hurdle from Gordon Richards-trained fav The Langholm Dyer (N Doughty). The Greystoke team go one better though when Primrose Wood hacks up in the novice chase, a race won in 1983 by their ill-fated star Noddy's Ryde.

10YEARS AGO

A TOP quality field for Ascot's Hyperion Stakes and Lady Herries' 11-8 fav Celtic Swing (K Darley) demolishes Michael Stoute's Singspiel (W Swinburn) byan incredible eight lengths. Owned by Peter Savill, Celtic Swing was odds-on when touched off for the 1995 2000 Guineas by Pennekamp before victory in the French Derby. Stoute's globetrotter pillaged victories in Canada, Japan, Dubai, Epsom's Coronation Cup and York's Juddmonte, earning pounds 2,222,799 in the process. Not too shabby really!

JOHNNY Gosden's Presenting (L Dettori) bolts up in the Autumn Stakes and the Mtoto colt would get within two lengths, in third, of mighty Lammtarra in the 1995 Derby.

REG Akehurst's Astrac (pensioned off only this week at 13) rattles home at 14's in the Coral Sprint under young claimer Seb Sanders. ;MARY Reveley's Sword Beach (P Niven) is a hot fav for Ayr's Tarbolton Chase but proves no match for Colin Parker's Boarding School given a tip top ride by Brian Storey.
