Missing Monday's meeting at Windsor, the Italian climbed back in the saddle without success at Yarmouth the next day.

After mount Campanologist hit Group One glory in Germany on Saturday, he was again on the bullseye for the first time since then, with Introvert taking division one of the Ashurst Wood Median Auction Maiden Stakes.

Mahmood Al Zarooni's favourite had been outclassed in his first two track appearances, but was much more savvy on this occurrence and made all to sweep aside runner up Tagansky.

Andre Pereira, his representative, said of Introvert, "He is still a bit backward and has a bit of growing to do, but he is a nice horse."

Division two was not so easy, with Rutterkin going from running out of stamina and getting over the line just in time to hang on by a short head from challenger Jacobs Son.

The winning jockey said, "He looked like he was going to win easily but he emptied out for some reason and it was a struggle."

Zigato finished off the Dettori treble and also gave John Gosden the second leg of a double with a neck victory in division two of the Bet Tri-Nations Rugby - Betdaq Maiden Stakes.

Sir Mark Prescott was was very satisfied with the run of Mme De Stael in the Bet World Matchplay Darts - Betdaq Handicap, with the filly finishing four lengths clear under Jimmy Quinn.

"She has made me work a bit and has arrived at the start on three occasions without her jockey," explained Prescott.

"I brought her here on Saturday and she went around the track before and after racing.

"She had blinkers and a hood on today and I would have been out of ideas if they had not worked!"

In spite of having top weight, Dvinsky in the six-furlong Godstone Handicap and claimed his 16th career win on his 158th start.

The Ian Mongan mount came with a late challenge to dash by the front-running Not My Choice, the nine-year-old passing the post with three-quarters of a length up to provide trainer Paul Howling with his first victory in 62 days.

Howling said, "I bought him after he had won a couple of races and he has been a revelation.

"He loves the all-weather and has won over £100,000 now which is amazing."
