The daughter of Fastnet Rock lived up to her name when finishing with a flourish in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (Sponsored By QIPCO) at Ascot.

For a moment it seemed the 33/1 chance’s late thrust would enable her to spring a surprise under Donnacha O’Brien but Roaring Lion scored by a neck. O’Brien Jr rode at 2lb overweight.

O’Brien Sr said: “She’s run a cracker. Everything went smooth and I’m delighted with her – there’s no excuses.

“You’re never sure whether you are going to get to the front in these big races, but she has showed big improvement today and she has run really well.”

There was a sting in the tail, O’Brien being suspended for seven days and fined £2050 for using his whip above the permitted level.

I Can Fly’s previous best effort, in ten other starts, had been when landing a Group 2 prize over a mile at Leopardstown the previous month.

On her latest start she finished sixth in the Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes at Newbury.
