Frankie Dettori steered Golden Horn to a brilliant victory in the Investec Derby at Epsom.

John Gosden’s three-year-old was sent off the 13-8 favourite for the premier Classic following a fine display in the Dante Stakes at York last month and the market leader was settled towards the rear of the field for much of the mile-and-a-half Classic.

Dettori allowed his mount to ease closer from the home turn and he dispelled any doubts about his stamina as he quickened clear of stable companion Jack Hobbs to give the popular Italian rider his second taste of Derby glory.

Just as he had done in the Dante, Jack Hobbs came off second best, beaten three and a half lengths, with Storm The Stars a further four and a half lengths away in third.
