Sheikh Ahmed's Talmada was third in a competitive maiden at Newbury a fortnight ago and she had little trouble opening her account in the 1m4f maiden at Haydock.

Ridden by Paul Hanagan, she travelled powerfully throughout before stretching clear up the straight to win by an eased down seven lengths.

Reesha had shown promise when fourth over a mile at Kempton earlier this month and she improved for the step up to ten furlongs when winning the maiden at Leicester.

Sheikh Hamdan's Teofilo filly came with a late run under Martin Dwyer to deny the short-priced favourite Cape Caster by a length.

Roger said: "Talmada is a lovely filly. She has improved since Newbury and won impressively. Reesha had also come on a lot since her debut and stays well."
