JOCKEY Jamie Spencer and trainer David Simcock won both the feature races at Windsor on Saturday, writes Dave Wright.

On a gloriously sunny evening, they took the Listed Sri Lanka August Stakes before landing the Group Three Sky Sports Racing Winter Hill Stakes.

Spencer had flown down from York after riding there in the afternoon and produced two characteristic hold-up rides.

The first leg of their double saw 7/2 chance Raakib Alhawa come from the rear to win the 1m 3f August Stakes by one-and-a-quarter lengths from Grace And Danger, the mount of Oisin Murphy.

Thirty minutes later, Desert Encounter passed his four rivals to land the £60,000 Winter Hill Stakes by half-a-length from Matterhorn, ridden by Franny Norton.

Both winners for the in-form Newmarket yard had been immaculately turned-out, catching the eye of many racegoers in the parade ring.

Spencer was the second rider to complete a double on the card, as Pat Cosgrave had taken the first two races sponsored by MPM Flooring, who are based in Slough.

Having gone close at Newbury earlier in the month, Fantastic Blue went off as the 6/4 favourite for the opening race over 1m 3f and once he had hit the front over a furlong out, the result was never in doubt.

Trained by Ismail Mohammed, the three-year-old won by three lengths from Starfighter to open his account at the sixth attempt.

Cosgrave was back in the winner's enclosure after taking the six-furlong Novice Stakes on Golden Dragon from Stuart Williams' yard.

The 4/1 shot hung left in the final furlong and just managed to hold on by a short-head from the fast-finishing King's Lynn in the hands of Murphy.

Yimou, trained by Dean Ivory, won the Watch Sky Sports Racing in HD Handicap, his third win in the last six weeks.

Ridden by Martin Dwyer, the 13/8 favourite was never headed in the six-furlong contest, finishing more than two lengths clear of Iconic Knight with Shane Kelly on board.

Mick Channon's City Wanderer (10/1) sparkled in the one-mile Windsor Racecourse Fireworks Return 2nd November Handicap in the hands of Tom Marquand, beating 5/2 favourite Rock The Cradle by one-and-a-quarter lengths.

Following two second places, Oisin Murphy went one better on William Knight's Kingston Kurrajong (11/4 fav) in the Follow At The Races On Twitter Handicap, holding on well to beat Recondite by a neck.

Windsor race again next Monday (first race 4.25pm) and it is their Country Fair meeting which means that in addition to seven races, there will be plenty of entertainment in the enclosures, including a falconry display, a mini farm and stalls selling a wide range of crafts and gifts.
