Jockey Andrea Atzeni secured an important big-race success when Biz The Nurse struck in the Derby Italiano at Capannelle.

Atzeni has made quite a splash in England this season and carried on the good work when he booted home the Stefano Botti-trained colt by four lengths from stablemate Wish Come True.

Ancient King completed the Botti benefit in third.

Boite, trained in Newmarket by Peter Chapple-Hyam, could finished only eighth.

The Robert Havlin-ridden colt was a good winner at Pontefract earlier in the month, but could not go with the big-hitters in this marked step up in class.
