Laugh A Minute
Roger Varian's juvenile had been placed on each of his three previous appearances, most recently finishing third behind Dream Today - who runs in Saturday's Champagne Stakes - in last month's Convivial Maiden at York.

Laugh A Minute was a 12-1 shot for this 22-runner contest and powered home on the far side of the track under Andrea Atzeni to score a shade comfortably by a length and a quarter.

Danzan was a clear second ahead of Alba Power in third. Great Prospector, the 7-2 favourite, was fourth.

Atzeni said: "We've always liked him and he's always worked like a good horse.

"Last time he probably didn't quite stay seven furlongs and he was caught wide all the way around.

"He's a horse with a real good turn of foot. He travelled beautifully through the race and picked up well. He'll be a better three-year-old and he has a lot of speed." 

Varian's pupil assistant Felix Lepeudry said: "He needed his previous runs and we stepped back in trip as Roger thought he didn't get home last time. 

"The orders were to sit at the back and come very patiently, which Andrea did really well. 

"There were some very good horses in the race, some rated over 100 but also some lower-rated horses, so we'll see how the form comes out of it. 

"He's shown enough at home to be very confident that he'll carry on with high targets."
