VIDEO: Fleeting wins May Hill Stakes for Ballydoyle
on 13 September 2018
There was also a Group 2 success for jockey Jamie Spencer and trainer Luca Cumani on Thursday's Doncaster card

Fleeting came home to good effect to provide Aidan O’Brien with a first victory in the William Hill May Hill Stakes at Doncaster on Thursday.

A field of 11 juvenile fillies went to post for the Group 2 contest and O’Brien was double-handed, with Fleeting the apparent second string behind the Ryan Moore-ridden Peach Tree.

The latter was on the pace throughout before fading, while the trainer’s son, Donnacha, settled 12/1 shot Fleeting towards the rear before angling wide to throw down his challenge on the far side.

The hat-trick-seeking Star Terms was in front racing inside the final furlong, but Fleeting saw out the straight mile best to get up and score by a length and a half.

Star Terms galloped on for second, ahead of Sand Share in third, but Dubai Beauty, the 11/8 favourite following an impressive debut at Newmarket last month, was bitterly disappointing.


God Given rediscovered the winning trail with a narrow verdict in the DFS Park Hill Stakes.

Luca Cumani’s filly was beaten just a short head by the reopposing Horseplay in the Lancashire Oaks at Haydock in July before finishing fourth behind Pilaster, the 6/5 favourite for this Group 2 affair, in the Lillie Langtry at Goodwood.

Having finished third in a French Group 2 on her most recent outing, God Given was a 5/1 shot under Jamie Spencer and made her move racing inside the final quarter-mile.

Horseplay held a narrow advantage racing inside the final furlong, but God Given wore her down to gain her revenge by a neck.

Having been held up last by Andrea Atzeni, Pilaster made late headway to finish a clear third, with Flattering faring best of Aidan O’Brien’s two Irish raiders in fourth.
