Brisbane-trained Bann Ruby has upset a strong field to win today’s Carlton Draught Ballina Cup (1600m).

Ridden by Matthew Paget, Bann Ruby started at the long odds of $14.50 to win from Montana Hilton ($6.20) and Burgundy Prince ($2).

In a great result for the bookies, favoured starters Cedar Manor, Felixtrinidad and Ready When You Are finished out of the placings.

A big crowd was on hand to watch today’s Cup.
