THE Richard Hannon-trained Sans Souci Bay lived up to its pre-race expectations at Salisbury yesterday when winning the seven furlong Priority Mailing & Digital Print Claiming Stakes.

The 6/4 favourite romped home by a comfortable eight lengths under Hollie Doyle. Madam Pracealot (12/1) was second with Black Bubba (5/1) a further two-and-a-quarter lengths behind.

The winner was then the subject of a friendly claim by Hannon (£12,000).

Despite heavy overnight rain and further showers throughout the afternoon, the Going at the Netherhampton track changed from Good to Soft (Soft in places) to Good to SOft after the opening race.

Devon-based Stuart Kittow enjoyed a rare Salisbury success when Youkan (20/1) took the opener - the Simon & Nerys Dutfield Memorial Novice Stakes over five furlongs.

5/2 favourite Scorching Heat, trained by Andrew Balding, duly delivered in the second - the Lascar Ruby Anniversary Handicap.

After Sans Souci Bay won the claimer, joint 3/1 favourite Fleur Forsyte took the honors in the first division of the Smith & Williamson Maiden Fillies' Stakes, getting the better of Lightening Dance (11/2) by a neck.

William Haggas' Mam'Selle (4/1) won the second division by the even close margin of a nose - Circulation (11/4) just missing out.

Daniel Muscutt was on board the David Simcock-trained White Chocolate (7/2) to land the British Stallion Studs EBF Fillies' Handicap.

The two divisions of the apprentice handicap saw wins for Intimately (10/1) and Many Dreams (7/1), trained by Jonathan Portman and Gary Moore, respectively.

Racing continues at the venue next Saturday (May 27) with the course's first evening meeting of the summer. Gates open at 3.30pm.
