Botti’s filly was a willing partner for jockey Ryan Moore and she showed a great attitude to win the Racing UK sponsored race from Materialistic with favourite Laugh Aloud not in the placings
ALJAZZI stormed home as she provided trainer Marco Botti with a third consecutive victory in the Racing UK-sponsored Snowdrop Fillies’ Stakes at Kempton.
Ryan Moore’s partner was produced deep inside the final furlong and showed a really game attitude to coolly account for Materialistic by a length and a half at odds of 4-1.

Godolphin’s filly Laugh Aloud (7-4 favourite) made much of the running, but she was swallowed up late on and finished out of the money.
Zest came home in third place.
Botti had won this one-mile Listed prize with Kyllachy Queen last season and with Lady Dutch two years ago.
Botti said: “We felt the filly was stronger than last year and were hopeful she could pick up some more black type.

“This has been a lucky race for us, it looked a good place for her to start off in and she won nicely.
“She is entered in the Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket (May 7).
“We’ll see how she comes out of the race and what the ground is like, but she stays the extra furlong and did win at Newmarket as a two-year-old, so the track shouldn’t be a problem for her.
“At the moment, that would be her likely next race.”
Moore was again on the scoresheet after the Richard Hannon-trained Khafoo Shememi (3-1) made every yard to win the one-mile conditions stakes by three and a half legnths.
Champion jockey Jim Crowley also left Kempton with a double after Plunger (6-4 favourite) won the opening British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes and Solar Flair (4-1) claimed division two of the six-furlong handicap.
Blakeney Point (12-1) later made an accomplished return to action when she made all the running to defeat Higher Power by a length and a quarter in the Queen’s Prize Handicap.
