The Fugue is reported to be none the worse the morning after her disappointing display in the Dubai Duty Free at Meydan.

John Gosden's three-time Group One-winning mare had only twice previously finished out of the first three in 14 career starts and one of those occasions was her fourth-placed finished in the 1000 Guineas two years ago.

Making her first appearance since being narrowly denied in the Hong Kong Vase last December, the five-year-old was unsurprisingly strongly fancied for her Dubai debut, but trailed home a well-beaten 11th of the 13 runners.

Simon Marsh, racing manager for owners Lord and Lady Lloyd-Webber, said: "She's absolutely fine this morning and it was just one of those things. We'll regroup when we get back to England and make a plan from there."
