Igider opened his account at the third time of asking when winning the 1m2f maiden under Andrea Atzeni. The son of Teofilo didn't look at home on Windsor's switchback track but battled on gamely to win by a nose.

Thirty minutes later Go Sakhee gained a first career success in the 1m2f handicap. He raced a little in snatches but Andrea gave him plenty of time to find his feet and he can with a late rattle to win by a neck.

Roger said: "It's great that the horses are in good form ahead of our most important week of the year. Igider is the type of horse who will improve with racing and a step up in trip.

"Although Go Sakhee's pedigree doesn't shout ten furlongs he shaped at Nottingham as though it would suit and he has seen it out well."
