It was a dream result for trainer Patrick Prendergast and jockey Ronan Whelan, and by far the biggest success of both of their careers.

However, victory looked some way off two furlongs out as Skitter Scatter did not pick up immediately and Lady Kaya cruised up alongside the pace-setting Main Edition.

When Lady Kaya hit the front she looked home for all money, but as he stamina began to ebb away Skitter Scatter clicked into overdrive and ended up running out a convincing two-length winner.

The 7-2 favourite had won a Group Three and a Group Two on her penultimate races and now has a Group One on her growing C.V.

Skitter Scatter was cut to 20-1 from 33s for next year’s Qipco 1000 Guineas.
