Eqtiraan was perfectly produced by Jim Crowley to beat the tenacious Mythmaker and land the Listed British Stallion Studs EBF Cathedral Stakes at Salisbury today.

A field of ten went to post for this six furlong contest.

As the race got underway it was Mythmaker who went on from Pixeleen and then came Eqtiraan.

Mythmaker showed plenty of speed but Pixeleen matched strides with the pair a length ahead of Dark Shot and Mr Lupton.

Racing to the furlong pole Mythmaker and Pixeleen were still there but to the inside Eqtiraan and Jim Crowley made a decisive move.

The only three year old in the field was able to pick off the determined front pair for a victory by about half a length from Mythmaker and Pixeleen.
