Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum’s son of Champs Elysees was the least-experienced member of the line-up having won his sole start at Wolverhampton last month, but a lack of match practice proved no hindrance whatsoever as he careered away for a seven-length success.
Ridden by Andrea Atzeni, Wadigor settled in the mid-division of the group that raced towards the stands’-side, and he could be spotted travelling ominously well as the steady early fractions notched up a gear passing the three-furlong marker.
Positioned to challenge as the field entered the Dip, Wadigor loomed alongside the leader, Van Huysen, without being asked too many questions.
Meeting the risihg ground, he quickened away in impressive fashion, going further clear under hand-riding to suggest a fruitful four-year-old campaign looms next year.
Roger said: “Wadigor won his maiden in good style, but it’s never easy switching to handicaps against much more seasoned horses. Wadigor showed signs of his inexperience in the preliminaries, but he was professional when it mattered during the race. He relished the fast ground and he looks an exciting type for nice prizes next season.”
