Last Updated: 16/05/19 2:59pm
Lah Ti Dar made hard work of it before ultimately landing the odds in the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Middleton Fillies' Stakes at York.
The St Leger runner-up was stepping down to a mile and a quarter for the first time in 12 months and the 1-3 shot needed every yard to take the Group Two honours.
Queen Of Time set an honest pace until the straight, where the tempo increased and the race hotted up.
Frankie Dettori appeared to be confident enough on Lah Ti Dar - but he had to roust the John Gosden-trained filly to see off the persistent challenge of Sir Michael Stoute's Rawdaa by a neck.
Stoute's other runner, Sun Maiden, was third after looking menacing two furlongs out.
