Aidan O'Brien and Johnny Murtagh's dominance at Royal Ascot continued as MACARTHUR proved too strong for Multidimensional after a two-way battle in the closing stages. Shahin had taken them along at a good clip with Macarthur always prominent just sat in the slipstream of Multidimensional. Ted Durcan made his move on Henry Cecil's charge a long way from home and as he approached the furlong marker he had beaten off all challengers except the Ballydoyle colt. For a moment it looked like Multidimensional might hold on but Macarthur was always gaining and he eventually got his nose in front in the last 30 yards and was driven out by Murtagh to eventually win by a neck. The winner could go for the King George back here at Ascot next while Multidimensional will go off a lot shorter than 25-1 next time as this was a much-improved effort. Maraahel and Speed Gifted stayed on without ever threatening the front two.
