DREAM of Paradise provided trainer Lisa Williamson of Saighton with her first turf winner on the flat at Chester Family Fun Day on Sunday.

A crowd of 38,614 racegoers turned up to enjoy the Roodee entertainment.

Williamson's 25-1 outsider set the pace in the Accuma Handicap Stakes for jockey Liam Jones, who was claiming a useful five-pound allowance, and they took the shortest route into the straight.

Benbrook closed but the local horse prevailed to score by three-quarters-of-a-length.

Jones said: 'I let her bowl along in front and then kicked on.'

The Woods of Windsor Nursery Handicap Stakes delivered an exciting finish in the first.

Eddie Ahern took advantage of stall one aboard the evens favourite Invincible Force to break smartly and hug the inside rail.

Challenged inside the final furlong Ahern's mount showed resolution to win by half a length.

Winning trainer Deborah Evans said: 'He's super, loads of ability. He'll have no problem getting further.'

Sent off the 4-6 favourite, Gweebarra showed the field a clean pair of heels in the Cheshire County Council Foster Care EBF Maiden Stakes to win going away by one and three quarter lengths for jockey Daragh O'Donohoe.

When John Egan asked Chicken Soup to win his race the result was never in doubt as the 9-4 favourite swept past the leaders and opened up a five-length margin in the Halliwell Jones BMW Mile.

'He's got plenty of pace, he travels well and that was the plan to win here today,' explained winning trainer Tim Pitt.

In the Red Corner Events Queensferry Stakes, Moone Cross led into the straight but was unable to sustain the pace as Stephen Donohoe brought The Kiddykid with a well-timed run up the centre of the course to secure a half-length advantage passing the winning post.

Trainer Dave Evans remarked: 'He's in great form and he was the best horse in the race and it's nice to see him win, he deserves it. His long-term target is the Ayr Gold Cup.'

John Egan recorded a double when scoring aboard Mr Aitch in the Warwick International Handicap Stakes. The 10-1 chance hit the front two furlongs out and held Mobaasher by half a length on the line.
