Dettori said: “What a fight we had. I’m exhausted too, emotionally as well!

“For a furlong and a half we were on top and it was gloves off lets have a scrap.

“I’m lost for words. She is brilliant, the second is a great horse, he was the one to beat and the crowd got a fantastic horse race.”

Gosden added: “She’s a brave and wonderful filly and what a great battle with Crystal Ocean. A fantastic battle. He headed her and then she came back.

“It’s what you want to see, two great athletes, the best older horse and the best older filly together.”
