Fresh on the back of a Group One success with Prosperous Voyage, Beckett and Rob Hornby teamed up once more to deliver yet another winner.

Jimi Hendrix finished third in the Britannia at Royal Ascot, and unsurprisingly the eventual winner was sent off as favourite.

Ultimately, Beckett's runner got the better of Positive Impact to win by a short head. "He's done very well since Ascot physically and he fell asleep coming out of the stalls today, at Ascot he did it the other way around," said Beckett.

"He's a big tall horse with size and scope so he should develop through the year as well. I'm sure we'll go up in trip at some stage. He was actually in over 10 furlongs yesterday. "We've no big plan, this was it really, he's owned by a syndicate so it's great for them to have a winner on July Cup day."
