Mendip, ridden by Frankie Dettori for Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum won this race by a couple of lengths from the closely matched Imbongi, Win For Sure and Colonial in second, third and fourth respectively.

Mendip went for home 250m out, and blew the competition away, in the process demonstrating a devastating turn of pace. Once Dettori produced the horse for his effort, the race was over within strides.
