A tale befitting of a Dick Francis novel brought unexpected drama to a sleepy summer card at Yarmouth on Thursday when the 50/1 winner of the opening contest was subsequently found to have been year-older stablemate Millie's Kiss.

Favourite-backers were left fuming after the race after the odds-on Fyre Cay was confirmed more than hour after the race was over to have been beaten a neck by Millie's Kiss, a 70-rated three-year-old due to run later on the card, rather than cheaply-bought debutante Mandarin Princess.

Both horses were trained by Charlie McBride, but a mix-up in the racecourse stables saw the wrong horse saddled up and make a winning debut under John Egan.

What are your views on this bizarre incident?

Surely the stable lass should have been able to tell the horses apart.

Charlie McBride will pay part of fine for wrong horse fiasco out of winnings

• Trainer had ‘fun bet’ of £10 each-way on 50-1 ‘winner’ at Yarmouth

• Disciplinary panel had ‘some difficulty’ in believing handler’s story

Horse ended up being disqualified.
