Lezoo proves too hot to handle in Cheveley Park

It was Lowther winner Swingalong that led a quality field along, with Albany Stakes scorer and 13-8 favourite Meditate also close to the pace in the hands of Ryan Moore.

William Buick had the winner covered up in mid-division in the early stages, but it was when pulled out into daylight approaching the two-furlong pole that the daughter of Zoustar demonstrated her blistering turn of foot as she quickly pulled alongside those in the front rank.

As she entered the final furlong, there was only Meditate to beat and Aidan O’Brien’s Royal Ascot winner ultimately had no answer to both Lezoo’s acceleration and will to win, with three-quarters of a length separating the pair at the line.

It was the filly’s fourth win from five starts and she reversed form with Duchess of Cambridge winner Mawj, with Saeed bin Suroor’s youngster finishing a creditable third on this occasion.
