Double delight for Dettori as Crystal Ocean lands Prince Of Wales's
Posted in: Royal Ascot News
With form over a mile and a half, the Italian was keen to make use of his mount's stamina and he managed to take two lengths out of 13-8 favourite Magical, who tracked Crystal Ocean into the straight.
As Crystal Ocean (3-1) began to wander under pressure Dettori was quick to straighten him up, but he was always far enough clear for the result to not be in any doubt.
Waldgeist made up plenty of ground from the rear to finish third, with Sea Of Class fifth after a late decision to run in the soft ground by William Haggas.

Dettori said: "I knew he stayed really well so I kicked early, I didn't hear anything coming and the rest is history.
"He was still full of running and I thought it would take a good one to pass me."
Stoute said: "He's a high-class horse and I'm delighted to have won a Group One with him now. He's a very admirable racehorse."
