DANCE Fever put up a nice effort to make a winning debut at Windsor Racecourse on Monday and could be a decent horse to follow, writes Rob Stevens.

The son of Sir Prancealot, a fast two-year-old who landed a Group Two before retirement, was a well-backed 9-2 chance for the Novice Stakes ran over six furlongs.

Trained in Lambourn, Berkshire by Clive Cox, the colt was slowly away and ran green early on under Adam Kirby.

Dance Fever then made good progress on the outside after halfway and was ridden to lead inside the final furlong, staying on well to score by a length and a quarter.

Runner-up We’re Reunited (11-4) had no extra inside the final furlong with Phuket Power (2-1 favourite) keeping on well to take third place in the closing stages.

Kassab shaped nicely on his third start and will be of interest in nurseries.

The son of Exceed and Excel, a bullet Australian sprinter and dual Group One winner, twice finished in fifth place in Novice events at Yarmouth in July.

The 11-1 chance was going strongly when waiting for a gap just over two furlongs from the finish. He was driven by Shane Kelly but not able to quicken over a furlong from the finish, keeping on at one pace after to finish in fourth place, beaten two and a quarter lengths.

The most impressive winner on the card was Chil Chil, who landed the opening Handicap over six furlongs for trainer Andrew Balding - hist 100th winner of the season.

The 4-11 favourite was held up in the last pair and progressed before halfway in the six furlong contest. She was carried left up the home straight but pushed into the lead over a furlong from the finish, drawing clear to win by four and a half lengths.

Chil Chil was backing up a win at Kempton on her seasonal debut last month and could bid for a quickfire treble with entries at Kempton today (Friday, 8.10pm) and Brighton next Monday (1.45pm).
