They split into two groups here with Duff setting a furious pace up the middle of the track while Main Aim, in a first-time visor, wasn't far behind on the stands' rail. This was a Group 2 in name and substance with Delegator, Dream Eater, Main Aim and RED JAZZ all used to running at the highest level. The winner is still improving and he went some way to proving his close third to Poet's Voice in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot last time was no fluke, as he won this well from Cat Junior, who was also runner-up in 2008. Happy to let Main Aim lead his group in the early part of the contest, Robert Winston waited in close proximity aboard Red Jazz before taking the lead three furlongs out. The three-year-old edged his way in front going into The Dip and was a clear leader coming out of it, responding well to pressure. He won going away, wouldn't mind a return to a mile on this evidence and could yet make his mark in a Group 1. Cat Junior enjoys it here and ran on well to edge out Main Aim for second, who responded to a first-time visor and deserves credit for sticking on for third. The big disappointment was Delegator who was marginally short of room when making his challenge. That shouldn't be used as an excuse, though, and he clearly didn't improve from his listed win last time.
