POST-Royal Ascot and pre-Derby was a quiet period in Britain as far as group racing is concerned, with just a trio of Group 3s on the table, but there were quite a few performances of note all the same.

Best of them on the clock was the win of Limato at Newmarket in the Group 3 Betway Criterion Stakes, a race in which Mubtasim went off far too fast and teed things up perfectly for the Henry Candy-trained veteran.
