GEORGIA Dobie will not forget her visit to Windsor on Monday as the apprentice jockey won the final two races on the card to give her the first double of her career, writes Dave Wright.

On her first ride for Newmarket trainer Hugo Palmer, she won the Dom & Geri Personalised Wrap Handicap on 13/2 shot Wall of Sapphire, and followed up on Kirkland Forever (8/1) for her boss, Eve Johnson Houghton.

It was also quite a day for Devon trainer Stuart Kittow, as he saddled the first two home in the 15-runner opening race with Incentive (6/1), ridden by Ben Curtis, just getting up to pip stablemate Trotter (4/1favourite) in the hands of Adam Kirby.

Kittow also owns Incentive, who was third in the corresponding race last year.

Upper Lambourn trainer Archie Watson's tremendous start to the season continued with Lambeth Walk (4/5 favourite) making an impressive first appearance with Oisin Murphy on board. The filly stayed on well to beat the slower-starting Dr Simpson (11/4), ridden by Richard Kingscote, by just over two lengths.

"I'm sure there's more to come from her," commented Watson. "She came back nice and relaxed."

Bellevarde, a 25-1 outsider, swept home in the MPM Flooring Handicap under a good ride from Hollie Doyle, with The Daley Express (7/1) following him home at the end of the five-furlong contest. Herefordshire trainer Richard Price's five-year-old had finished second in the same race last year.

The Hughie Morrison-trained Korcho (15/2), ridden by Charlie Bennett, returned to action after a 171-day break to win the Horse Guards Gin Festival 8th July Handicap, getting up in the final strides to beat Albert Finney (4/1).

Morrison and Murphy completed a double by taking the 10-furlong novice stakes with 10/11 favourite Telecaster in great style, finishing nine lengths ahead of Deal A Dollar (7/4) ridden by Ryan Moore.

"He's a very nice horse, but quite immature," commented Morrison. "He's one of the best in our yard."

Windsor's hugely-popular evening meetings starts on Bank Holiday Monday with free admission to the course. Tickets for the Grandstand are free, providing they are registered by midnight on Sunday.

More than 10,000 people took advantage of the free offer last year and the attendance this Easter is likely to be around the same.

Gates open at 2.55pm with the first of seven races due off at 4.55 and the last at 8.10.
