Over at Ascot, Classy chaser Politologue got the better of Charbel to win the Christy 1965 Chase.

Paul Nicholls' charge looked set to record a comfortable success when mastering the freewheeling Gold Present turning for home but found Charbel a persistent challenger in the closing stages and had to dig really deep to land the spoils.

If The Cap Fits stayed on strongly to win the Coral Ascot Hurdle having looked in big trouble turning for home.

However, Noel Fehily conjured a sustained challenge from If The Cap Fits who finished strongly to hit the front half a furlong out and win by a length-and-a-half.

Phil in the money

Phil Mickelson needed four extra holes and floodlights to get the better of Tiger Woods and pocket a cool $9 million.

Perhaps pocket is not the right word as he’ll need a decent sized van to drive home all that cash...

England in control after Rashid five-wicket haul

England were on the brink of a memorable overseas whitewash in Sri Lanka when ending day three of the third and final Test in complete control in Colombo.

Five wickets for Adil Rashid on day two - ably supported by Ben Stokes - turned the game in England's favour and the tourists continued to dominate thereafter.

England beat Australia again

England swept aside Australia 37-18 to claim a sixth successive victory over the Wallabies and complete a successful autumn series at Twickenham.

The old enemies were deadlocked at 13-13 entering half-time but blistering tries from Elliot Daly and Joe Cokanasiga opened up daylight before the win became a rout when Owen Farrell touched down in the closing stages.
