Godolphin recorded a timely double at Newmarket’s latest meeting on the Rowley Mile on Saturday.

Yattwee provided the stable with their first winner in the Fred Murfitt Handicap over six furlongs.

The horse made it two wins in three races after edging out Sir Robert Cheval, making his first start for Newmarket trainer Robert Cowell, by just a neck.

Godolphin’s second success on the card came courtesy of Clear Water who romped to victory in the CJ-Murfitt sponsored fillies’ maiden over seven furlongs.

James Doyle, on his way to a treble on the afternoon, steered the filly a comfortable four-and-a-half length victory.

Sefton Lodge handler Martyn Meade was also on the mark with Chelsea Lad in the Westmead Farms Handicap.

The Clodovil colt, carrying a 5lb penalty for a maiden win last time out, displayed a blistering turn of foot to collar Sir Michael Stoute’s Barleysugar close home.

There was also a double on the card for Richard Hannon.

In the feature Fairway Stakes, Hannon’s Steel Of Madrid all but ended Linguistic’s Derby aspirations with an impressive showing.

Earlier in the afternoon, Nibras Bounty shrugged off the attentions of Hugo Palmer’s gutsy Evergate in the Andrew Fleet EBF Stallions Novice Stakes.

Other races on the card saw Darryll Holland guide John Reel to victory in the Galicuix Handicap, while Mark Johnston’s Revolutionist took the honours in the concluding Mainstay Handicap.
