Kevin Ryan's charge had made almost every yard of the running to land a valuable Newmarket handicap at the start of May and duly repeated the feat in the five furlong contest under Neil Callan.
Racing in the middle of the track, he drifted across to the stands' side rail when he came under pressure as the even money market leader loomed up ominously on his inside.

Hamza is entered for the Wokingham Handicap at Royal Ascot and also holds an entry for the Group One Darley July Cup later in the season.
