DAVYDENKO got on top late on to win with a bit in hand and looks a potentially useful sort to follow this season, writes Rob Stevens.

The well-bred son of Intello, who was champion three-year-old colt in France in 2013, finished seventh of 10 on his sole start at two.

Trained by Sir Michael Stoute, Davydenko was sent off a 12-1 chance for the Class 5 Novice Stakes ran over a mile at

Windsor

on Bank Holiday Monday.

The colt progressed well under Louis Steward to lead just inside the final furlong before being pushed out and readily beat Birdcage Walk (16-1) by a length and a quarter.

Sparkle In His Eye, the 3-1 second favourite, was one-paced back in third place and beaten three and a half lengths.

The eye-catcher on the seven-race card was Lush Life, who shaped nicely on her reappearance and looks one for a good handicap this season.

The 7-2 chance made an awkward start to the Class 3 Handicap over a mile and was help up in last place by Jamie Spencer.

The pair progressed on the outside up the home straight and stayed on inside the final furlong to nearly snatch second place from Masham Star (6-1).

A daughter of Mastercraftsman, who took the 2009 Irish 2,000 Guineas amongst his four Group One wins, looks set to build on her three career wins to date.

The handicap was won going away by 11-8 favourite Greenside, who had a length and three quarters in hand over Masham Star under the shadows of the post.

The most impressive winner on the card was Summer Moon (9-4 favourite), who landed a Class 5 Handicap over a mile and a half by five lengths for trainer Mark Johnston and jockey P J McDonald.
