After some near-misses and disappointments over the previous three days, Frankie Dettori finally got his Royal Ascot winner and what a performance it was from Inspiral. The champion juvenile filly, who was forced to miss the 1,000 Guineas after a minor setback, kickstarted her three-year-old campaign with a taking display, turning on the afterburners having found daylight and storming clear to score by four and three-quarter lengths. She added a second Group 1 of the season at Deauville later in the year, while runner-up Spendarella landed the Del Mar Oaks on her next start.
