Rimth: Fred Darling winner
Rimth (13-2) showed a smart turn of foot to land the Dubai Duty Free Stakes (Fred Darling) at Newbury.
Paul Cole's filly was held up at the back of the field in the early stages by Christophe Soumillon and she picked up really well to collar Sharnberry (12-1) in the closing stages.
Sharnberry travelled smoothly throughout the contest but couldn't match the winner for speed late on and had to settle for second with Richard Hannon's Eucharist (7-1) back in third.
"The jockey thinks she'll stay a mile but he feels the French Guineas might suit her better than Newmarket," said Cole.
"It'll be up to the owner though."
