A small but select field for this heritage handicap won by EMIRATES SKYLINE. The race was not short of drama when Frankie Dettori, who tracked the leader Smart Instinct, went for home aboard the winner. He switched Emirates Skyline left, bumping Mr Aviator who was soon beating a retreat. However, the winner was the best horse in the race and full marks to the Godolphin team for producing him ready to win on his reappearance. Ladies Best was always playing catch-up on the winner and never looked likel getting on terms. He hung left in the closing stages too but this was a marked improvement on his first two starts of the year and he won't be far away next time. Rationale ran on very well from behind to take third. Shake On It appeared as if he failed to handle the track while Eradicate is probably plenty high enough in the weights.
