Progressive juvenile Castle Star took the GAIN Marble Hill Stakes for Fozzy Stack, a confident Chris Hayes steering the 5/2 fancy from last to first to score by two lengths from 15/8 jolly Masseto – who met traffic problems in running – with 12/1 shot Strapped third.

Stack had intended to go straight to Royal Ascot after he won over five furlongs at The Curragh last time but he explained: “He was going to come out over the door, if I hadn’t raced him this week he would have killed someone at home!

“The Coventry would be a possibility but I wouldn’t rule anything in or out. The Railway Stakes back here deserves consideration too, we’ll just see nearer the time.”
