Roger Varian’s Valyrian Style returned to winning ways at Kempton Park on Wednesday evening under Jack Mitchell, despite passing the post second.

The 6-4 favourite won his first two career starts last season but arrived at the Sunbury-on-Thames track with a point to prove after his Epsom Downs disappointment back in April.

After going tooth-and-nail with Protected Guest in the straight, in which the subsequent winner’s rival bumped Mitchell’s charge in the closing stages, the stewards awarded the contest in favour of the son of Frankel.
