The Tony Mullins-trained Princess Zoe had to be tough under Joey Sheridan in the closing stages as she was challenged on both sides.

Hughie Morrison’s Quickthorn laid down his bid down the centre of the track – but it was Ian Williams’ Enemy who was giving her particularly close attention on the rail, after William Buick had been forced to wait for a gap to come.

Aidan O’Brien’s Wordsworth and Brian Ellison’s Tashkhan were also in attendance, but had cried enough inside the final furlong

Enemy and Princess Zoe came close together and a stewards’ inquiry was called, but the popular grey kept the race to take Group Three honours.

QuinnBet were impressed and cut the winner, who prevailed by a head, to 10/1 from 14s for the Gold Cup in which she finished second last year to Subjectivist.
