Godolphin continued their domination of the German-Thoroughbred.com Sweet Solera Stakes as Ihtimal claimed the Group Three prize at Newmarket.

The last four winners of the seven-furlong race have sported the famous Godolphin silks and the Saeed bin Suroor-trained Ihtimal made it five in the hands of William Buick.

He went for home over a furlong out and while former Godolphin rider Frankie Dettori made a late challenge aboard Midnite Angel, the 11-4 favourite was two and three-quarter lengths too good.

Godolphin also took third with Wedding Ring a further half-length adrift.
