Frankie Dettori celebrated his first winner in the Godolphin silks in eight years after steering Terebellum to glory in the Betfair Dahlia Fillies' Stakes at Newmarket.
Ranging up with plenty of horse underneath him at the two-furlong pole, Dettori got the reaction he hoped for from the Sea The Stars filly when asking for her maximum effort in the mile-and-a-quarter prize, defeating Queen Power (9-2) by a length and a quarter.
Gosden said of the 10-11 favourite: "She did that well. She got a little tired. She has only been on the Al Bahathri (gallop) and this was her first time on grass in a long time.
"I think the first three are nice fillies and that was not a weak Dahlia at all. I think she just got tired at the end as she carries a lot of condition.
"That is her trip and she wouldn't have wanted deep ground today. We'll see what we do going forward, there are races like the Pretty Polly at the Curragh and the Romanet at Deauville for her."
James Tate saw his decision to drop Far Above (7-2) back to the minimum trip vindicated with victory in the Betfair Supports Racing Welfare Palace House Stakes at Newmarket.
The son of Fahrr demonstrated why the Newmarket handler was keen to give him a try over five furlongs after proving too quick for his rivals in the Group Three prize.
Racing prominently on the rail from the off, he continued to pour on the pressure once getting the lead before holding 2018 runner-up Judicial (15-2) at bay by three-quarters of a length, with Major Jumbo (11-2) third.
Tate said: "I was a bit worried PJ (McDonald) being up there, as I would have preferred him to be fourth or fifth. He is a very fast horse and the fastest I've ever had. He is awfully delicate and ideally he likes soft ground as he has won on soft and heavy.
"If we had not got the rain we might not have run and we would have had to go straight to the King's Stand Stakes, which would be a tall order for a horse with so little experience.
"He won twice over six last season not getting home in my opinion. He was always going to have a go at five furlongs."
The trainer added: "All being well we can look at the Group Two at Goodwood, the Nunthorpe, Flying Five and the Abbaye. Ten days is too short of a turnaround for Ascot."

Mishriff (10-1) created a minor surprise as he beat better-fancied stablemate Waldkonig (8-11F) in the Betfair Exchange Free Bet Streak Newmarket Stakes.
Waldkonig had been a buzz horse for John Gosden through the winter after powering to a nine-length win on his debut at Wolverhampton in December.
The market leader settled off the pace set by Cherokee Trail, but David Egan always had Mishriff, who was last seen finishing second in the Saudi Derby in February, to the fore.
He travelled well throughout, with an eyecatching low head carriage, before making his bid with a couple of furlongs to run.
Waldkonig was hard at work and although the colt did pick up, he then drifted across the track as Mishriff made the best of his way home to prevail by four lengths.
Volkan Star (6-1) was also in the front rank throughout and he rallied on the line to grab second, just edging out Waldkonig.

Gosden said: "It is rather what I expected, really. Mishriff had a run in Saudi Arabia and was a fitter horse. He enjoyed the ground and the trip, the track is perfect and he has been training well at home. We will have a look at the Hampton Court at Ascot with him if he is in good order after the race."
The Newmarket handler said of Waldkonig: "He is green and is learning about the game. He has never been raced on turf in his life. He got a little bit muddled running down into the dip. He has just got unbalanced and needed the race up the hill. He has run absolutely fine and has run as I thought he probably would. The race will bring him on a great deal.
"I wouldn't think he will want to go further than a mile and a quarter. He will come on mentally and physically for the race - the other guy was more the finished article. Absolutely (rules him out of Epsom). I said a mile and a quarter is his maximum right now.
"He might be in the betting, but he had only run once at Wolverhampton and he wasn't in my betting. He wasn't even entered in the original race."
