Teodoro defied a 19lb rise in the weights since his first success in May when winning for the fourth time by making all the running in the Bet toteexacta At Handicap at Great Yarmouth.

Since being gelded in March, the Tom Dascombe-trained three-year-old has gone from strength to strength with one win at Redcar and two at Haydock before taking the feature on the card.

Regular partner Richard Kingscote allowed him to bowl in front and had enough in the tank to see off Mafaaheem by two and a half lengths.

“He’s just improving, he’s growing. He’s a big horse and will be better next year, I hope,” said owner Lawrence Bellman.

“Richard rides him so well and since we fixed the hood he’s just so cool and loves it from the front.”

Tulip Fever (7-2) battled on well to ward off all-comers and take the totequadpot At Nursery Handicap. The six-furlong contest was wide open a furlong out, but William Haggas’ filly asserted in the final 100 yards to get the verdict by half a length from the staying-on Mraseel. The victory was the second leg of an across-the-card double for Haggas after Novoman had given the Newmarket trainer his 100th winner of the season 10 minutes earlier at Goodwood.

Brigliadoro (4-1) defied top weight with a game display in the Bet totetrifecta At Handicap. Charlie McBride’s six-year-old responded to David Probert’s urgings to hold Mountain Angel by a neck with Glory Awaits third.

Zain Hana (7-1) put up a pleasing performance when making a winning debut in the Bet totejackpot At EBF Fillies’ Novice Stakes. The Jeremy Noseda-trained daughter of Shamardal was produced by John Egan and got the better of the more experienced Foxtrot Lady to score by a neck. Noseda had to settle for second with Firefright who was outpointed by John Gosden’s Hyde Park (8-1) in the Bet toteWin At Handicap under Ted Durcan. Mick Appleby’s Hannington (9-1) denied Hard Toffee by a short head in a ding-dong finish to the Bet placepot At Apprentice Handicap under Gabriele Malune.
