Master The World came fast and late to win successive renewals of the Listed Betway Churchill Stakes at Lingfield Park.

Nine went to post for this 1 ¼ mile contest.

From the break it was Maverick Wave and Frankuus who led.

Settling down, Maverick Wave went into a length lead from Frankuus, with Big Country and Scarlet Dragon next.

At halfway, Maverick Wave and Rab Havlin still had the call from the grey, Frankuus.

Turning for home, Frankuus came to join the leader, while Scarlet Dragon inched up the inside and Big Country swept through out wide.

Big Country went on, with Master The World coming to challenge to his outside, as Addeybb closed.

In a thrilling finish, the grey Master The World, under a fine ride from Sean Levey, just got up to record back to back victories in this race.

Big Country was an honourable second, with Addeybb doing his best work at the finish for a close up third.
