Time: 2m 25.89s (fast by 1.21s)

Ghaiyyath made every yard of the running to win the first Group One of the season in Britain.

When he's good, Charlie Appleby's charge is very good and the 11/10 favourite never saw another rival under William Buick having been clear at halfway.

However connections of Investec Derby winner Anthony Van Dyck and staying superstar Stradivarius will be delighted with their returns, the pair finishing second and third respectively.

The runner-up finished to great effect under Ryan Moore to get within two-and-a-half lengths of the winner at the line while despite being off the bridle with half a mile to run, Stradivarius ran a great Gold Cup trial for Royal Ascot.
