The 16-1 shot Knighton Combe was a surprise winner of the English Summer National at Uttoxeter on Sunday.

The 11-year-old, ridden by Daryl Jacob and trained by Jamie Snowden, challenged for the lead three fences from home and held on for victory.

Ballyvesey came home second ahead of Surenaga, while 2010 winner Ouzbeck tired before finishing fifth.
