Native Khan
The Azamour colt was a bit warm down at the start and raced very keenly in the early stages behind a generous pace set by Libranno, but as Yaseer went up Libranno's inside, Fallon took the 8-11 favourite down the centre of the track and he took over a furlong and a half out.

He pulled a couple of lengths clear before Fallon gave him a reminder as he began to idle close home but he still beat Libranno by two lengths.

Dunlop said: "I'm very pleased. It was an afterthought to come here as he came to hand quicker than I thought, but I'm very pleased we did. I want to run him in a Guineas, but we'll have to see whether it is the French one or here.

"He is French-bred but I certainly wouldn't rule out coming here.

"He could be one for the French Derby but he won't run anywhere if it is soft."
