Kevin Ryan’s Glass Slippers was aiming to become the first since Lochsong to win the Abbaye twice – but a draw in stall 10 made Tom Eaves’ task all the more difficult.

Glass Slippers broke well, though, and Eaves was able to get a prominent position on the outside and looked to have every chance.

But Wooded made full advantage of stall two and Pierre-Charles Boudot got a dream run throughout on the rail.

Entering the final furlong Frankie Dettori appeared to be going as well as anything on John Quinn’s Liberty Beach, but the very testing ground just took its toll close home.

Just as Wooded appeared to have seen off her main contender, Glass Slippers came with one last lunge, determined to hold on to her crown, but she had to admit a brave defeat.
