Typical display sees Archetype take win.

ARCHETYPE put up decent performance under top weight to win for the third time from six starts at Sandown.

Oisin Murphy had the Simon Crisfordtrained colt just off the pace set by Pillar Of Society in the All New Fiesta At Trust Ford Handicap, before going on a furlong out.

Archetype (13-2) strode away nicely to land the spoils by two and a half lengths from Icespire, with High Acclaim a nose away in third.

Crisford feels there is more to come from the three-year-old, who was unraced at two but who has proved himself pretty versatile with wins over a mile and a mile and a quarter.

"He's turning into a magnificent horse.

He's given his owners (Highclere Thoroughbred Racing) a lot of fun and he's progressing," said the Newmarket handler. "When he ran on the heavy ground at Goodwood (over a mile and a quarter) it didn't suit him. Soft ground today over a mile was fine. He wouldn't want to go on anything softer than that. He loves to flick his toe through quickish ground.

"He's versatile, he's doing extremely well and I'm looking forward to him next year as well for the remainder of this season. There's no reason why he shouldn't run again this year. We'll talk to the owners and make a plan.

"He'll strengthen and improve for next year."
