The veteran Boy In The Bar posted his 12th career win on his 73rd start by landing the Attheraces Handicap at Newcastle under Ben Curtis.

He suffered a bump at the start, but was then content to track the leaders before making his challenge just over a furlong out.

The 10yr old then hit the front inside the final furlong before gamely running to the line to beat the favourite by half a length.
