Karl Burke’s Dubai Station looked promising early last season when placed at Royal Ascot in the Norfolk Stakes and then finishing third behind French superstar Earthlight.

However, in two further runs he failed to reproduce that form but Burke subsequently reported that he had valid excuses for those efforts.

Nevertheless, he was sent off 10-1 in the Listed race, usually run at Ascot, due to plenty of strength in depth.

A’Ali, winner of the Norfolk last season, Richard Fahey’s Ventura Rebel and Marco Botti’s Malotru all appeared to hold stronger claims on the form book.

Drawn in stall 13 near the usually unfavoured stands rail, Ben Curtis decided to keep a true line and it paid dividends as he found himself in front fully two furlongs out.

Fleeting Prince, Dream Shot and last of all Malotru, who met trouble in running, threw down challenges but Dubai Station held on by a diminishing neck.
