Stradivarius trailed Andrew Balding-trained Cleonte entering the home straight, but Dettori reeled in the leader for a comfortable victory.

The Bjorn Nielsen-owned superstar added the traditional stayers triple crown of the Gold Cup, Goodwood Cup and Doncaster Cup to his long list of achievements, vindicating a late and surprise decision by John Gosden to detour to Doncaster.

“Thats the easiest hes won – hes so great to ride, he relaxes, he quickens. Brilliant,” said Dettori.

Gosden, who has never been afraid of deviating from a plan, said: “Hes a gorgeous horse to train but he was too fresh at home – rearing up, shouting and playing – so I thought wed better put him in the Doncaster Cup.

Stradivarius was not expected to race again until the Long Distance Cup at Ascot next month, but trainer John Gosden said he was too fresh.

The task was made easier by the late withdrawal of regular rival Dee Ex Bee and Stradivarius, who returned at 1-9, proved far too good for Cleonte and Max Dynamite under Frankie Dettori.

“I had no intention of coming here,” said Gosden. “But he was so fresh, rearing up and shouting all the time, so I thought wed come and win the Doncaster Cup.”

Not even the Friday the 13th curse could put the frighteners on the winning machine that is Stradivarius, who recorded his tenth victory in a row in the Magners Rose Doncaster Cup.

Stradivarius has dominated the staying division over the past couple of seasons, with back-to-back wins in the Yorkshire Cup, Gold Cup, Goodwood Cup and Lonsdale Cup.

“I think Mr Nielsens big plan, if the horse is happy and well, is to go to Ascot next year,” he said.

No Dee Ex Bee was a big pity, but in this majestic form its hard to imagine hed have laid a glove on Stradivarius, who breezed home from the gallant Cleonte.

Stradivarius appearance here was a surprise – conventional wisdom was that hed go straight to Champions Day at Ascot – but John Gosden explained he was “so playful” after an easier year than 2018, that a race was something of a necessity.

If the big ambition of a third Gold Cup win at Ascot is achieved in June 2020, the Arc will probably be the plan this time next year
