Owned by Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum, the three-year-old was making his first start since landing a warm conditions event over course and distance in the spring, but the absence proved no hindrance as he travelled powerfully under Jack Mitchell and swept two-and-three-quarter-lengths clear in the straight.

This was a fourth consecutive victory for Ennaadd, who is four from five on synthetic surfaces having taken apart a useful field here, with the second, You’re Fired, a high-quality turf handicapper and the third, Sovereign Debt, a two-length Listed winner in October who was looking to complete the hat-trick in this event.

Ennaadd stopped the clock in 1m36.45, over a second quicker than he did back in April when the surface was riding considerably quicker. He is a hugely exciting prospect for next year, with the finals of the All-Weather Championships now a possibility given he qualified for Good Friday by taking this £40,000 prize.

Roger said: "We've always thought a lot of him and he had a setback after his win in April, but he's over that now and has a nice future. It’s nice that he's qualified now as there's not masses for him, but he's one to look forward to. We don't have to rush to make plans."
