It was a great day for Katie and Dave Nolan with a double at Ripon. Eljayeff followed up on his win at Carlisle with another dominant performance. He was always prominent under Dave on the stands side rail. He had the lead two furlongs from home and stayed on strongly to win by a length-and-three-quarters.

They then doubled up with Stewardess in the last race on the card to pick up her first win of her career. She was held up in mid-division and made headway over the final two furlongs. She had the lead inside the final furlong and stayed on strongly to win by two-and-a-half-lengths.
