FORMER champion jockey Ryan Moore was the star on show with an impressive 58-1 four-timer in the first meeting of the new season at Royal Windsor Racecourse on Monday.

Richard Hannon started the year as he means to go on when he chalked up the first winner of the 2014 Windsor season, the first of a double on the card.

Magical Roundabout is a well-bred son of Zebedee and was able to justify odds of 4-6 when landing the opening Maiden Stakes over five furlongs.

The favourite was shaken up to lead over a furlong from the finish and stayed on well to beat 20-1 outsider Fine Prince by half a length. Sportlobster was one-paced in third place at 20-1, beaten two and a half lengths.

Hannon and Moore teamed up again an hour later to win a Class 4 Handicap over a mile with Tobacco Road. The 5-1 chance made all and stayed on well to hold 4-1 market leader Saigon City by a length and a quarter.

Starwatch was never able to challenge back in third position, but the seven year old did outrun his odds of 25-1.

Moore completed his treble aboard Cannock Chase in a Class 5 Maiden over 10 furlongs for retainer Sir Michael Stoute. The 5-4 jolly was bustled along to lead in the straight and drew away for a comfortable four-length success.

Late Night Mark kept on well to take second near the finish at odds of 20-1, edging out 7-2 shot Loving Home by a neck.

Moore reserved most praise for his winning ride in the last race aboard Civil War, trained by father Gary Moore, who came from last to first in great style.

The 13-8 favourite was held up and still had plenty to do as he was shoved along over three furlongs from the finish, but he made relentless progress to close and lead.

Cival War was driven out to win the Class 5 Handicap over a mile and a half by a length and three quarters from 8-1 shot Yul Finegold. The Cornishcowboy made no impression back in third position at 20-1, beaten over six lengths.

Berkshire-based trainer Mick Channon was left both surprised and impressed by the success of 33-1 longshot Grevillea in a Class 4 Handicap over a mile.

Grevillea was free to post under William Twiston-Davies but drew clear of the field to win by five lengths. Intermath, also at 33-1, made no impression in second position and 8-1 chance Jaahiez was beaten over six lengths back in third.

Stomp hung left in the closing stages of the Class 4 Handicap over six furlongs, but was able to sustain his effort to win by two lengths at odds of 5-1. Montaigne, an 8-1 chance, was able to take second ahead of 16-1 shot Desert Ace in third.

Finally, Heezararity had to be kept up to his work by Jimmy Fortune to take the Class 5 Handicap sponsored by Unibet, who last week announced a new partnership with the racecourse.

The 16-1 chance held fellow outsider Palus San Marco (20-1) by half a length with 5-1 shot He’s A Striker back in third position, beaten two and a half lengths.

Stuart Dorn, executive director at Royal Windsor said: “We were thrilled to see plenty of people join us at the course armed with coats and umbrellas in true British style for the first fixture of the season.

“The meeting gave us plenty to enjoy with Ryan Moore chalking up four winners and Richard Hannon scoring a double for the team that took the 2013 top trainer title here at Windsor.” The next fixture at Royal Windsor is this Monday (April 14), a seven-race card starting at 2.20pm.
