The 9-4 favourite had been a doubt for the race due to the ground, but the Derby runner-up was given a fine waiting ride by Andrea Atzeni to deliver both his and trainer Roger Varian's first British Classic. Just as Epsom third Romsdal moved to strike for Leger specialist John Gosden, Kingston Hill began his charge, and although he brushed past eventual third Snow Sky, he was a length and a quarter on top at the post.
