Comfy bounced back from a 584-day lay-off to land the feature race at Leicester yesterday. Richard Hughes took Sir Michael Stoute's charge down to the start in gentle fashion but there was nothing tardy about the way they returned as they got the better of long-time leader Ceepio by half a length.

Disappointment of the seven-furlong event was the winner's stablemate, the 4-6 favourite L'Oiseau d'Argent, who ran no sort of race.

Later, Hughes was fined £130 for going down to the start late aboard Comfy.
