First to salute the judge was Arabian Crown in the Listed Stonehenge Stakes. The juvenile son of Dubawi (pictured) stayed on well in the one-mile contest to beat his paternal half-brother Arabic Legend by two-and-a-quarter lengths. Son, a first-crop son of Too Darn Hot, ran on well to record his first Black Type in third.
Bred by the GB Partnership, Arabian Crown was a €600,000 yearling and a full-sister to Stakes winner Everest Rose.

Later in the card, State Occasion, a five-year-old daughter of Iffraaj recorded her first Stakes victory in the Upavon Fillies’ Stakes. Run over ten furlongs, the Car Colston Stud bred daughter of Forest Crown was not extended to beat a competitive field by nearly four lengths.

Earlier in the day at Beverley, Too Darn Hot recorded a new impressive winner when Magsood won by two-and-a-half lengths. Trained in Newmarket by Roger Varian, the son of Stakes winner Tantshi holds an entry in the G2 Champagne Stakes at Doncaster next month.
