Sir Henry Cecil’s superstar and the highest rated horse in the world was winning his seventh Group One from just 11 career starts, a tally which is just over half of that achieved by the second highest rated horse, Black Caviar, who is due to line up on the final day of the Royal Meeting.
The brilliant colt’s brother, Bullet Train, adopted his usual front-running role – which jockey Ian Mongan again performed to perfection – with his illustrious sibling travelling strongly in his slipstream with market rival Excelebration alongside.
Tom Queally eased the son of Galileo out into the clear with around three furlongs to run and was motionless in the saddle as his mount opened up.
Push quickly came to shove for Excelebration, who was having his fifth crack at his old rival, and he had no master to the gears of this remarkable performer.
Eleven lengths was the scarcely believable margin at the line, with Aidan O’Brien’s four year old narrowly holding on for second from a fast finishing Side Glance having run his heart out in defeat.
German raider Indomito finished fourth in a race where very few got involved.
Cecil said: “It’s relief, I’m not surprised but relieved. “There’s no such thing as a certainty. He is a great horse and you’ve seen him for yourself so everybody can form their own opinion.
“He did exactly what I thought but he’s still improving, Tom said he’s still improving. He looks as if he’ll stay a mile and a quarter so we’ll leave our options open.
“He’s in the Eclipse, he’s in the Sussex, he’s in the Juddmonte and the two races at the end of the year. He’ll tell me what to do next, I don’t tell him.
“It’s very unlikely he’ll go to the Breeders’ Cup.”
