Alamshar, who was third in the Epsom Derby, and Dalakhani, unbeaten in six outings before Sunday's race, were left to battle it out as the furious pace left the field trailing with the two horses running neck-and-neck two furlongs from home.

THE Aga Khan has been a great lover of Irish racing all through his life. He showed that love is no uncertain fashion with his amazing multimillion euro gift to Irish racing this month.
He bought a hotel at the back of the present Curragh stands for an estimated 15 to 20 million euro and presented the whole area occupied by that hotel to the Irish Turf Club, the owners of the Curragh racecourse. This purchase enables Horse Racing Ireland to make the Curragh one of the real gems of the sport in the world.
