Regal Realm (red): Won the Prestige Stakes
Regal Realm prevailed in a thrilling finish to the Whiteley Clinic Prestige Stakes at Goodwood.
Jeremy Noseda's filly endured a torrid passage with Jimmy Fortune switching left and then right as he looked for the room to challenge.
It looked too late in the day when a gap did appear but the daughter of Medicean quickened decisively to win a finish of heads from Rakasa, Questing and Nayarra in the Group Three contest.
A good winner on her debut, she then went close in a Group Three at Ascot behind Angels Will Fall and looks a filly of some potential.
John Gosden had scored with his last two runners in the race and Questing set out to make all at a steady gallop under William Buick. The once-raced daughter of Hard Spun kept on gamely but finished third beaten a short-head and a head with Rakasa - another once-raced maiden winner - splitting the pair under Frankie Dettori.
Mick Channon's five race maiden Nayyara posted a career best to finish a close fourth.
"There was an anxious moment or two," admitted Noseda.
"They were looking for one or two - they went for a couple of gaps and lost them both but in fairness, she went all the way to the line.
"We had a few little hiccups with her and missed Royal Ascot, but we have learned that she needed further and it's great to win a Group race.
"We'll now have a look at the Fillies' Mile at Newmarket."
Sky Bet cut the winner to 16-1 from 25s for the 1000 Guineas.
