Kieren Fallon had to settle for fourth Position as the spoils were taken by Sammy Jo Bell aboard Dubai Acclaim from the Mondialiste Leger Legends Classified Stakes at Doncaster.
Champion Flat jockey Fallon, who wrapped up his saddle gave the Nigel Tinkler-trained Kilbaha Lady each opportunity over the mile, but could get into a winning position.
That honour went to Bell, who is now assisting her partner Philip Makin in his switch from jockey and gave up driving injury in February 2018.
Destroyer had taken the 16-strong field although that raises cash for Jack Berry House and the National Horseracing College, but had been swamped as the pace.
Inspired by Richard Fahey, Dubai Acclaim (5-1) struck on the front and just held the late boom of Noel Fehily on Hammer Gun by a short head in a thrilling finish.
Flying Dragon has been three-quarters of a length away in third, with the next 2 and a quarter lengths back into Kilbaha and Fallon Lady in fourth.
Fallon – riding for the first time on exactly the identical card as kid Cieren junior – said:”I believed I had been going to triumph, it was just when I asked her to quicken she just did not let herself down to the ground.
“I travelled better than anything else and believed I was going to win, but we did not. It’s all for a fantastic cause, however.”
A delighted Bell explained:”It turned out very good, I think I hit the front too soon, however that was just me getting excited.
“I’m really grateful to Richard for giving me a ride and it is great to pay him back with a winner. I truly loved it.
“I did just just hold on, but this was me moving too soon – the horse was out me. He was great. The previous time I stumbled on him was a yearling.
“I am not as fit as I used to be, I know that far, but we’re quite busy in the yard, so that I have not done as much preparation as I’d have liked.”
Fehily, who declared his intention to retire after riding a winner at Cheltenham in March, said:”The trainer told me not to hit the front too soon, however I think I overdid the waiting tactics!
“I have blocked in my hands only over a furlong out and I had to switch, it probably just cost mebut he’s run a blinder.
“It’s been a terrific occasion for a excellent cause and I’m just delighted to have been requested to participate. Hopefully we’ve raised lots of cash.”
