Analysis

Inevitably they split into two groups and it was GIGANTICUS on the near side who completed a tremendous day for the Hills family. Ridden by Michael for father Barry, Giganticus had dropped to a feasible mark and took advantage in style over his favourite trip on his favourite track. He'll shoot back up again for this and it could be a while before he's back in the winners' enclosure, but today was the day. Al Muheer tracked the winner but never looked likely to overhaul him while Redford ran a sound race in third. Godolphin had another one run well with Mutheeb in fourth with the near-side quartet narrowly ahead of the far side bunch who were headed by Racer Forever. He broke from trap 30 and his performance was a rare piece of good news for the Gosden team this week.
