Jockey Richard Kingscote and Upper Lambourn trainer Richard Hughes both brought up doubles at Kempton Park on Wednesday evening.

Kingscote rode Rosenzoo in the first to victory before steering the odds on shot Let Life Happen home to win the sixth race on the card.

Hughes bagged a quick fire double by sending Fair Angellica and Star Music to Kempton, with both prevailing.

The opening race on the card was won by Rosenzoo under Kingscote for Middleham trainer Charlie Johnston who sent the horse a distance of 245 miles to keep up his good record of winners at Kempton.

The horse under Kingscote won comfortably by two and a half lengths from Oisin Murphy on American Tale the 13/8 favourite.

The second race of the evening a Nursery Handicap Stakes for two year olds went to She Is A Keeper, who previously had finished second on three straight occasions, with Hollie Doyle on board who beat William Buick on Zola Power by one and a quarter lengths.

Buick had better luck in the next by steering the 3-1 joint favourite Fair Angellica to victory from Doyle on board Shallow.

The 11-8 favourite Star Music under James Doyle made virtually all to win the fourth on the card for maiden two year olds. The filly eventually won by seven and a half lengths from Rossa Ryan on Gaasyah and Laura Pearson on board Private Getaway making her first appearance on a racecourse with the fast finishing Salamanca City, who dwelt at the start but ran on very impressively for her appearance on a course, to finish fourth.

Callum Shepherd- who rode Salamanca City in the previous race- got Folk Star home in the next with Alpha Female under Ryan finishing half a length behind.

The penultimate race on the night went to the odds on favourite Let Life Happen under Kingscote for Sir Michael Stoute.

The filly had previously raced just three times and each occasion just missed out on finishing first past the past. Tonight was her night with an impressive performance from the three year old.

The final race of the night went to the Kevin Philippart de Foy trained Malka ridden by Benoit de lay Sayette who finished two and a quarter lengths ahead of Mordor under Murphy.
