Abu Dhabi — James Doyle scripted a hat trick, while Saeed bin Suroor landed a double for Godolphin Racing, at Windsor, UK.

The British jockey reeled off winners onboard Human Nature, Balliol and Elhaame, while Saeed bin Suroor notched winners with Human Nature and Elhaame.

Human Nature, the son of Kodiac from Sundown, broke well and was well in command from two furlongs out. He then pushed out won the six-furlong contest comfortably by 3 1/4 lengths over Surbett, trained by Marco Botti and ridden by Luke Morris. Shaka Zulu, saddled by William Haggas and under Seb Sanders, was third.

Balliol’s was fourth in his first race, the Lewis Chisholm Stag 2015 Maiden Stakes at Bath, earlier this month. Royal Rettie, trained Chris Wall and ridden by Ashley Morgan finished 3/4 lengths ahead of Harrison Stickle, the ride or Oisin Murphy, trained by John Gallagher.

Meanwhile, Elhaame, the son of Acclamation from Gold Hush, held up in the last pair and was still last three furlongs out. The five-year-old then progressed on the outer just over two furlongs out and was then driven to lead inside the final furlong.

He held on well and won by half a length over Field Of Fame, trained by Andrew Balding and ridden by David Probert. Gothic, trained by Sir Michael Stoute and the ride of Ted Durcan, was third.

It was Elhaame’s fourth win in 17 starts.
