After finishing third in the Epsom Derby, Hurricane Lane made up an incredible amount of ground to go two places better in the Irish Derby for Charlie Appleby.
The three-year-old was midfield for the majority of the contest and sent to reel in the charging Lone Eagle, who had bolted clear of his opponents on the turn into the home straight.
Martyn Meade’s recruit was four lengths clear of Hurricane Lane in the final two furlongs, with Frankie Dettori opting to push his mount on early.
However, Charlie Appleby’s colt found a second wind in the final stages and William Buick pushed him on as he reeled in the leader in the final strides.
The three-year-old just found enough and was able to push in front and win by a neck for Godolphin.
Aidan O’Brien’s Wordsworth stayed on for third, while Earlswood was unlucky to be pinned in on several occasions and did well to claim fourth.
High Definition flopped on his much anticipated outing, finishing second to last of the 11 runners.
