Jockey Bridget Andrews admitted she had "no excuses" after falling from Stick To The Plan yards from the winning line at Southwell.

The 7/4 favourite in the 4.20 on Tuesday seemed to have victory in the bag having jumped the last and pulling further clear.

But jockey Andrews lost her balance on the run-in when her foot came out of the iron and she slipped to the turf with victory only moments away.

The mishap allowed Nemean Lion (9/1), who had looked booked for second place, to bag an extremely fortuitous victory.

"No excuses. I fell off and I will make sure it doesn't happen again!"
