Last year's Derby and Arc winner completed the preparations for his showdown with So You Think by exercising with Class Is Class (5/1) on the Newmarket gallops in the middle of this week, allowing the older horse a healthy lead before chasing him down and pulling ahead. Yesterday, Ryan Moore's mount had a comfortable four-length success over Tazeez.

Class Is Class completed a treble for Moore, who had two winners for Jeremy Noseda. Ritual (7/2), having his first outing since November, was drawn unfavourably on the five-furlong track in stall six, but Moore manoeuvred to the far rail and his mount quickened stylishly past Night Affair.

Stablemate Talwar (4/1) left a weak racecourse debut at Doncaster a long way behind when claiming the EBF Maiden Stakes by four lengths.
