By Simon Jackson at Kempton Park.
James Doyle made winning look easy as he bagged a double in successive races on See And Be Seen and the unbeaten Limato on a glorious evening at Kempton Park.
Doyle was widely applauded at the Royal meeting last week for his sublime ride on Kingman when winning the Group 1 St James’s Palace Stakes; where he timed his run to perfection to hit the front at the half furlong and win going away.
The 26-year-old similarly appeared to have all of his rivals’ moves covered in the feature race at Kempton on Wednesday night as he eased to victory on the Henry Candy-trained Limato.
The two-year-old son of Tagula was strongly fancied by punters after a comfortable win in a Class 5 event over course and distance two weeks ago.
Once again Limato appeared to have plenty in hand as he strode to an impressive victory in the six furlong Class 3 and his trainer indicated that he could once again be stepped up in class.
“I will have to discuss it [his next race] with Paul [Jacobs – owner],” Candy said after his charge justified odds of 4-5 to score by two and a quarter lengths from Natural Order and William Buick. “He should probably have to go in some type of Black Type race.”
The victory completed a quick double for Doyle who scored 30 minutes earlier on the Sylvester Kirk-trained See And Be Seen in the two miles Class 6, leading all the way to win by three and a half lengths.
Earlier, the Sir Michael Stoute-trained two-year-old Disegno impressed when landing the seven furlong Class 5 for Ryan Moore.
The son of Fastnet Rock had finished third on his debut at Newmarket last month, where he had initially appeared to race a little green, before running on well. He had clearly learnt from the experience and this time raced close to the pace before shaking off the challenge of Ventriloquist to win by a length and a half.
