Dettori Masterclass Seals Chester Vase Win For Arrest

Juddmonte’ €440,000 Goffs November foal Arrest (Ire) (Frankel {GB}–Nisriyna {Ire}, by Intikhab) closed his four-race juvenile campaign with a second in October’s G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud and made a winning sophomore return under a Frankie Dettori masterclass in Wednesday’s G3 Boodles Chester Vase.

Maintaining a three-wide passage off the rail and racing on fresher ground in second for most of this G1 Derby trial, the 10-11 favourite was sent to the front soon once past the half-mile pole and stayed on strongly thereafter, crossing the line underneath the stands’ side rail, to easily account for Ballydoyle’s Criterium third Adelaide River (Ire) (Australia {GB}) by a geared-down 6 1/2 lengths. Hadrianus (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) was the only one of three other rivals visible to the naked eye and finished 10 lengths further back in third.
