Farraaj: Winner of the Winter Derby for potenial new partnership

6/4 favourite Farraaj was a battling winner of the Blue Square Bet Winter Derby at Lingfield under Andrea Atzeni.

The winning rider was putting himself in pole position to pick up some choice rides from Roger Varian, with the Newmarket trainer confirming Neil Callan won't be riding as his retained jockey this season.

He'll have liked what he saw from Atzeni too as he tracked the pace aboard the son of Dubai Destination before going to the front inside the distance.

Robin Hoods Bay (12/1) threw down a persistent challenge but had to settle for second, half-a-length adrift of the winner, with Richard Hannon's Cai Shen (9/2) close-up in third.

Last year's winner Premio Loco travelled strongly behind the leaders but found little when let down inside the final quarter of a mile.
