Raffle Prize romps home under a three pound penalty!

A flying start for Frankie Dettori at Newmarket as Raffle Prize wins the Duchess Of Cambridge Stakes.

A field of seven fillies went to post for the six-furlong Group Two, with Roger Varian’s Daahyeh all the rage as the 5-4 favourite as she aimed to supplement her Royal Ascot triumph in the Albany Stakes.

Raffle Prize had run out a surprise winner of the Queen Mary Stakes in Berkshire last month and was a 9-2 chance to strike for trainer Mark Johnston – who saddled the brilliant Attraction to claim this prize in 2003.

With Frankie Dettori in the saddle, the Middleham raider was sent straight to the front and gradually raised the tempo.

Daahyeh did her best to close the gap, but Raffle Prize was not for catching and was ultimately well on top as she passed the post a length and three-quarters to the good.

Final Song was best of the rest in third, with Irish raider Celtic Beauty disappointing.
