Mukhadram

Hanagan had William Haggas' charge, who was making his seasonal bow, smartly away and he appeared to set a decent clip at the head of the field.

Chased throughout by 15-8 favourite Main Sequence, Hanagan set sail for home well over two furlongs out and his mount only began to tire inside the distance.

That allowed Main Sequence to close the gap but Mukhadram was still half a length too good at the line.

Miblish claimed third, despite slipping when leaving the stalls, while Danadana appeared unable to cope with the easy ground.

Richard Hills, representing owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, said: "He's had a few problems but we took him to (former racecourse) Great Leighs last week and William was very happy with how it went.

"He ran some great races as a three-year-old and we kept him in training because we thought he could improve.

"Ascot is around the corner, he's in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes and a number of other races, so we will have to talk to Sheikh Hamdan and William and see where they want to go."
