MY DREAM BOAT, 16-1 outsider of the six-strong field, downed his better-fancied rivals and eclipsed Japan’s world’s best A Shin Hikari, the odds-on favourite in a dramatic race.

Clive Cox and Adam Kirby were making it back-to-back Group 1 wins after Profitable’s King’s Stand win on Tuesday.

Kirby was at his strongest in the finish to catch Breeders’ Cup Turf winner Found on the line as Japan’s superstar A Shin Hikari went out like a light after making the running with Yutaka Taka.
