Main Aim - impressive winner.
Main Aim took a step up in grade in his stride when running out an impressive winner of the Timeform Jury Stakes at Haydock under Ryan Moore.
The Sir Michael Stoute inmate bolted up by seven lengths in a Newbury handicap earlier this month and was sent off the 7-4 market-leader for this Group Three contest.
Settled just behind the early leaders by Ryan Moore, the four-year-old quickened to the front at the furlong pole and only had to be kept up to his work to beat Beacon Lodge by two lengths.
Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to Main Aim's owner Prince Khalid Abdullah, said: "He has come and proved the class he is and that is always a relief.
"He showed speed, then settled well and although he idled a little bit, he has gone on and done it very well.
"He is in the Golden Jubilee at Royal Ascot, but he is also in the Sussex Stakes, so there are possibly mile races to consider too.
"He is not in the Queen Anne at Ascot and very firm ground would be a bit of a worry for him."
