Danedream produced a workmanlike performance to successfully defend her crown in the Longines - Grosser Preis Von Baden.

Peter Schiergen's star mare landed this Group One prize in her homeland prior to her victory in last year's Prix de l'Arc and she will return to Longchamp next month.

Fresh from her narrow triumph in July's King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot, the four-year-old was never too far off the pace and was brought towards the near side in the home straight by jockey Andrasch Starke.

German Derby winner Pastorius and talented mare Ovambo Queen both refused to go down without a fight, with all three still in with a chance heading inside the final furlong.

But Danedream kept responding to pressure to claim victory, with Ovambo Queen just beating Pastorius to the runner-up spot.
