Owned by Mr Michael Hill, the three-year-old has proved a model of consistency over a variety of trips this year, filling the frame on four of his previous six starts without experiencing much luck in running on more than one occasion.

However, the son of Kheleyf appears to have found his niche in sprinting on the all-weather, travelling smoothly in mid-division under the in-form Harry Bentley before picking his way out of a pocket and motoring down the outside to run out a comfortable winner by three-quarters of a length.

A bunched finishing involving the first five home should ensure his handicap mark remains largely unchanged for this first success, and he ought to continue to progress over similar tests throughout the winter months.

Roger said: “I am delighted for Michael that Compas Scoobie has broken his maiden as he is a consistent horse who shows a good attitude. The surface has clearly suited him and six furlongs looks his trip.

“He will have plenty of options over the next few months and he looks more than capable of winning again.”
