Marathon man Stradivarius made Goodwood Cup history. Since the Qatar-backed race became a Group 1 in 2017 it has only ever been won by Stradivarius, since the start of last year an unbeatable force. This ancient contest has existed since 1812 but only once had a horse won it on three occasions. That was the mighty Double Trigger.

“I may have celebrated ten yards too soon but I knew I had it won,” said Dettori.

John Gosden watched silently as tough as nails Stradivarius dug in to get the three-peat in the Grade 1 contest.
