For the second of the Gosden-trained Oaks winners Anapurna, there was no such reprieve after a similarly tardy start, with Oisin Murphy never able to find clear passage.

In a repeat of her remarkable finishing burst in last season's Gr.1 Prix de Diane Longines, the Godolphin-owned Musis Amica circled the field to finish a fine second, while another Andre Fabre inmate, Ligne D'Or, filled out the places.

Fleeting looked in position to take a hand in the finish but could do no better than fifth under Wayne Lordan, while stablemate Pink Dogwood paid for her efforts in following Star Catcher, fading late on to be eighth on what was her first start since finishing third in the Irish Oaks.
