Fourteen went to post for the QIPCO Supporting British Racing Stakes and it was Ryan Moore that was to bring the Lady Cecil-trained grey home on what was only his fourth racecourse start.
Moore said: "He was struggling on that ground in places. It was beautiful yesterday, but it's dried out a fair bit today."
Lady Cecil said: "He's a giant of a horse and he should only be coming into his own this year.
"We've had to take our time with him but we've given him plenty of time.
"Ryan gave him a great ride today and while the ground is lovely, it was quick enough for him.
"The Ebor could be a possibility but we'll just see, he ran over a mile-six at Nottingham and it seemed too far."
Miss Marjurie (33/1) ran on well to be second with Amralah back in third.
