There was a huge shock at Lingfield today after a 100-1 shot won the 5.10.
Celestial Island came home first for jockey Peter Carberry and trainer John Gallagher, beating 33/1 shot Dance who came in second. The favourite, Giveagirlachance, was back in third.
Here’s what Twitter thought of the big-price winner…
