Sir Michael Stoute’s stable star Mustashry made all the running and held on well to win the Group 2 in a tight finish.
Raydiance set the early gallop in the seven-furlong contest, but Jim Crowley settled Mustashry near enough to the pace and he was perfectly positioned when the race began in earnest.
Dutch Connection and D'bai both launched their challenges on the stands side rail and the latter looked as though he may kick on for victory, but Mustashry found plenty in the dying strides to hang on by a neck.
Oh This Is Us mustered a late run to snatch third, beaten just a short head.
Crowley said: "Obviously we were dropping back to seven furlongs and we couldn't see any obvious pace in the race.
"We got a little bit outpaced, but he was well on top at the line.
"I won't be advising Sir Michael anything. I'm sure he's got a plan for him.
"It's great that he's so versatile and you can go from seven to 10 furlongs.
"He's a super horse that seems to be improving."
