JUS Pires secured a first career victory when landing a mile maiden at Kempton on Wednesday night.
The Nigel O'Sullivan-owned Scat Daddy colt went down by a head on his second career start.
But he went one better on his latest assignment, recording victory by the same margin in the hands of jockey James Doyle.
Ancient Foe took the field along for much of the contest with Doyle never far away aboard the 15/8 favourite.
When Zain Star hit the front over a furlong out, Jus Pires had the move covered.
Doyle asked for a maximum response from the Shalfleet runner in the closing strides and he got a got response with Jus Pires getting up late on to scoop the spoils.
