York review: Dominant Ghaiyyath imperious in sensational Juddmonte International performance

, York review: Dominant Ghaiyyath imperious in sensational Juddmonte International performance

THE best in the world?

On this evidence, there’s no middle-distance turf horse on the planet who could live with Ghaiyyath.

Ghaiyyath ran his rivals into the ground at York

After all, in dominating the Juddmonte International, he hammered the reigning 2000 Guineas winner Kameko, multiple Group 1 winner Magical and the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes winner Lord North.

And Charlie Appleby’s brilliant five-year-old did it the hard way. He has always been a free-going sort, but over the last 12 months he has been able to harness that ferocity.

He was keen enough early on, with the bonny filly Rose Of Kildare pestering him for the first 300 yards.

But he soon established a lead and as he turned the taps on half a mile from home, he had the brilliant Magical completely tapped for toe.

Lord North and Kameko each loomed up to challenge but no sooner had they got to his tail than he’d kicked again under William Buick.

The brave Magical stuck on tenaciously to finish second, but Ghaiyyath was simply in a league of his own.
