Vazirabad became the first horse to win back-to-back runnings of the Group 2 Dubai Gold Cup when swooping late to catch Beautiful Romance in the first race of the night on the turf track at Meydan.

Christophe Soumillion sat well off the pace but came with a devastating late burst up the straight to prevail from the Godolphin mare with Sheikhzayedroad filling third spot, one place ahead of Big Orange.
