Was a tremendously consistent sprinter trained in Hong Kong who, sadly, was fatally injured when running at Deauville in August.

Gold-Fun had showed British racegoers what he was made of when a neck second to Twilight Son in the 2016 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Hong Kong-based trainer Richard Gibson said: “In these Group Ones I never like making excuses and Royal Ascot is the top level and we missed it by a whisker, which is disappointing.

“He’s a fantastic horse and he’s done us all proud today. We have come a long way and, from a professional point of view, you are always pleased when your horse runs to his rating. It was tight and all credit to the winner  – we have got no excuses today.

“He really did finish well. It’s not quite our day but we are very satisfied with a second place and it’s a great credit to Mr Sutong Pan (owner) for allowing us to bring him here.”
