Doyle stars at Newmarket
To Eternity overcame 352-day absence to spark a 29-1 treble for jockey James Doyle with a wide-margin triumph in the British Stallion Studs EBF Chalice Stakes at Newmarket.
Doyle's gamble of ploughing a lone furrow down the stands rail proved to be a shrewd move, with the John Gosden-trained filly turning the Listed contest over a mile and a half into a procession.
To Eternity (5-1), who was runner-up in the Galtres Stakes at York in August 2016 when she last ran, was always up with the pace and kept up the gallop to win by an easy six lengths in the rain-softened ground.
Pleasant Surprise was second with Fleur Forsyte a neck away in third, with the favourite, Isabel De Urbina, fourth.
Doyle utilised the same part of the course for his other two winners.
First, he grabbed it for Dathanna (7-4 favourite), who got home by a length and a quarter from Amourice for Godolphin and Charlie Appleby in the Newmarket Equine Hospital EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes.
Similar tactics saw him complete his treble on Mojito (5-6 favourite), who registered a cosy two and a quarter length verdict for trainer William Haggas over Perfect Madge in the Malcolm Roxburgh Retirement Handicap.
