Toronado justified the unwavering faith of his connections when pouncing late to gain his revenge on Dawn Approach in the Qipco Sussex Stakes at Goodwood.

 

Kevin Manning made an early bid for home on the 2000 Guineas winner Dawn Approach, kicking clear with two furlongs to run on the Jim Bolger-trained colt.

 

First to challenge was Declaration Of War but he soon cried enough, before Richard Hughes made his move on Toronado having travelled particularly strongly in behind the principals.

 

Such was the late surge of Toronado, who had been fourth to Dawn Approach in the Guineas and beaten a short head in the St James's Palace Stakes a Royal Ascot, the 10-11 favourite had little chance to battle back.

 

In the end Richard Hannon's 11-4 chance ran out a cosy half-length winner.
