James Doyle and Khalid Abdullah completed a Sandown double when Ski Lift won the concluding HWFA Williams Handicap, but Ralph Beckett will be delighted the effort of runner-up GREEN LIGHT and the race is worth another watch.
The second was sent off a largely unconsidered 16/1 chance under Sean Levey and was still in an uncompromising position a couple of furlongs from the finish.
However, as the leaders tired up the hill Green Light's stamina kicked in and he stayed on really well, only going down to a classy and progressive rival who simply had too much toe for him.
But it was a real return to form for Green Light, who had completely bombed out when tried over a mile and a half for the first time at Ffos Las last time.
There's no doubt on this evidence the 12-furlong trip is worth another shot, but a fast-run 10 clearly suits him well and hopefully he can build on this effort next time as he won't go up much in the weights.
The first three home in the seven-furlong maiden had fancy entries so Charlie Hills was entitled to be happy with the performance of COMMEMORATIVE.
A chestnut son of Zamindar with plenty of size and scope, Commemorative was a 25/1 chance here but finished the race off strongly to pick up fourth.
He has more stamina in the pedigree and ought to be able to pick up a mile maiden somewhere before the season has finished, or to return an interesting horse for next year.
Richard Hannon is mulling over the options for TIGGY WIGGY, who continues to work well according to our gallops reporter.

With the Lowther Stakes safely in the bag, connections are mulling between the Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket and the Prix de l'Abbaye at Longchamp.
The flying filly shows blistering speed and this has always been evident in her work at home.
She is as industrious as any of the Hannon juveniles and is bursting for her next race, looking happy and alert in her first breeze since York.

ELYSIAN FLYER created a good impression when scoring in his debut, and he caught the eye breezing up the strip.
He will be hard to beat in the novice stakes at Bath.
ZURIGHA enjoyed herself in an unexacting stretch ahead of the Atalanta Stakes at Sandown.
