On a typically low-key Monday, CHADIC was the one to take from the seven-race afternoon card at Ayr.
Mark Johnston's Echo Of Light colt failed to figure on his racecourse bow at Haydock in the middle of last month but showed the benefit of that experience when a front-running second at Epsom last time.
A fast start in the seven-furlong EBF Stallions Maiden Stakes at the Scottish venue put Joe Fanning's mount in pole position from the outset and it's well worth watching the full video replay to see just how he powered clear when asked to put the race to bed around the two-furlong pole.
Reported to be a "big, rangy sort" by his trainer, he's bound to keep improving with time and is one to keep a close eye in nurseries.
The opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Median Auction Race at Killarney is also a race that should be re-visited.
Victory went to King Christophe but it was 25/1 runner-up B COSMOS who caught the eye.
He travelled extremely well in the hands of Leigh Roche and waltzed into the lead over a furlong out, but the son of Avonbridge showed his inexperience from that point.
He simply hit the front too soon as he clearly got lonely at the head of affairs and it was too late to respond after the winner flashed to the front close home. Compensation awaits the runner-up sooner rather than later.
Windsor's Reuben Foundation British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden was an eventful race, with War Alert ultimately putting his previous experience to good use when finishing strongly to get the better of Disprove, who also had a run under his belt.
The third horse was Effectual, who made a very smart debut for Roger Varian and Cheveley Park Stud and should be winning races before too long.
However, there was drama in behind as two horses (almost three), and their riders, ended up on the turf having seemingly clipped heels after just a couple of furlongs.
Richard Hannon's newcomer RENAISSANT, sporting the Cheveley Park first colours, was very nearly involved in the melee at the back of the field and could never recover to mount a serious challenge.
Ryan Moore did the sensible thing in bringing her home under tender handling and the well-bred daughter of Dutch Art is no doubt well up to leaving this bare form behind.
