Roger Charlton's star held off last season's Epsom Derby hero to win by the Tattersalls Gold Cup by a length and a half.

That saw the horse cut to 6/1 for the Coral-Eclipse. The sponsors moved their price in from 10/1 to 6s. bet365 also go that price for July's 10-furlong showdown at Sandown, with other firms as short as 5/1.

Al Kazeem is now third favourite for the race behind 2000 Guineas winner Dawn Approach, who will run in the Derby next weekend, and Lockinge first Farhh.

Camelot, sent off at 4/11, has been pushed out to 10/1 by Stan James following his defeat.

It's a similar picture in the betting for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, which takes place at Longchamp in October.

Al Kazeem was moved in to 12s from 20s by William Hill, but 14/1 is offered by Boylesports, bet365 and BetVictor, while Camelot is now available at 16s with BetVictor and Stan James.

Meanwhile, Leading Light won the Gallinule Stakes on the same card and was duly introduced at 10/1 by sponsors Ladbrokes for the St Leger.

Stan James cut their price from 20/1 to 12/1.

The feature Irish 1000 Guineas was won by Just The Judge - the pick of our columnist Simon Holt - although ante-post quotes about the filly weren't immediately forthcoming.
