Sheikh Hamdan's son of Cape Cross had shown promise at home and it was pleasing to see him transfer this promise to the racetrack.

He raced professionally throughout under Jack Mitchell who tracked the pace made by Mayasa. He got a lovely tow into the race before showing a smart turn of foot up the straight.

He put the race to bed at the furlong marker before galloping readily clear to win by three and three quarter lengths.

It was nearly a double on the card when Vizier was only narrowly touched off in the second division of the same contest.

Roger added: "Both colts have run very well. I was impressed by Mutawaaly, he is from a family which get better with age and distance so for him to win over a mile at two is very pleasing.

"Vizier has improved with every start to date and should be winning soon."
