MOONLIGHT SONATA emerged with credit on her debut as she filled third spot behind the race-hardened Majestic Manner and Ajaadat in a seven-furlong maiden at Lingfield.
A 210,000 guineas purchase and closely-related to John Gosden's Group Two-winning three-year-old colt Western Hymn, Moonlight Sonata was understandably green for most of the race but finished it off with a flourish.
Only a length and three-quarters off the winner at the line, Moonlight Sonata should soon be paying her way for the Sir Michael Stoute stable.
Earlier on the card, there were plenty of positives to be gleane from the performance of KINEMATIC when second to Godolphin improver Charming Thought in division one of the six-furlong maiden.
Andrew Balding's filly was having her first start since a highly creditable third to Ivawood in a five-furlong Sandown maiden in June and appreciated the step back up in trip.
Ryan Moore attempted to make all under the daughter of Kyllachy and she boxed on well after being headed by the winner, who looks a smart colt in his own right.
Charming Spirit had finished second to the now 85-rated Mark Johnston inmate Flash Fire first time out at Nottingham so Kinematic has probably out-performed her mark of 77 having been beaten just two lengths here.
She is closely related to middle-distance winner Full Toss, as well as Listed six-furlong scorer Musical Comedy and could be asked to step up to seven next time. She still looks a work in progress and Balding will find her a race in due course, no doubt.
ESTIMATE, whose connections have given the filly an entry for the Melbourne Cup, worked pleasingly on the Limekilns short gallop this morning.
The Sir Michael Stoute-trained four-year-old came up the strip at three-quarters speed with GOOD VALUE.
She eased half a length up and looks in very good fettle with some high-profile targets ahead.
SNOW SKY was involved in a three-horse workout and continued his preparation for the St Leger in satisfactory style.
As the tempo quickened in the last furlong he took the honours by half a length from GHAAWY and MANGO DIVA.
Several horse then worked in solo manoeuvres, with BOLD SNIPER the first.
He was followed by HILLSTAR, ENOBLED, BRAGGING and SHAMA'S SONG.
ROCKET SHIP then engaged in bridle work with KINGS FETE.
The latter looks well in himself and should figure in Doncaster plans.
MUSTARD is a likeable juvenile and he had the call over VOICE CONTROL, SANDY CAY and CAPSIZE.
The beautifully-bred ANGEL VISION (by Oasis Deam out of top-class racemare Islington) has not been straightforward but she is ready for a belated introduction at Salisbury.
DISSOLUTION runs tomorrow and completed his build-up for his Haydock trip with a pleasing breeze.
