Opinion Poll Dettori was happy to bide his time through the early exchanges as Chiberta King took the field along but early in the straight it became apparent there was only going to be one winner.

Striking the front between the final two furlongs, the 5-4 favourite showed an impressive turn of foot under Dettori’s hands and heels to win with plenty in hand.

Ibicenco edged out Chiberta King in a photo for second.

Simon Crisford, Godolphin’s racing manager, said: “He was very professional and we’re very pleased.

“Not all can do what he does. He races in Dubai in the winter and Europe in the summer – he’s very active. If he was to be given a break he would go bananas and he thrives on his racing.

“He doesn’t show the need for soft ground anymore and is very straight forward now.”
