Kingston Hill gained plenty of admiring glances from work-watchers at Thursday's Breakfast With The Stars event.

Last season's Racing Post Trophy winner pulled a couple of lengths clear of two lead-horses in a 10-furlong stretch at Epsom to leave jockey Andrea Atzeni all smiles

He said: "He went really nicely. He travelled good and quickened up well. He handled the ground - it's pretty soft out there - but I was very pleased with him.

"We didn't go mad, we went a bit quicker down the hill as we wanted to see how he went round the bend. He pricked his ears when he got to the front, he always does that."

Roger Varian's colt finished eighth in the 2000 Guineas but has always been considered more suitable for the Investec Derby.
