Wings of Eagles romped to victory in the Epsom Derby, coming from the rear of the pack in a blistering sprint to the line.
The 40/1 outsider pipped 5/1 shot Cliffs of Moher and favourite 7/2 Cracksman to take victory in the 238th running of the 1m 4f race.
Jockey Padraig Beggy, riding his first Derby, timed Wings of Eagles' surge for the line just right as he shot through the field in the final half furlong. He said: "I said if I get a run, I'll win,"
Cliffs of Moher looked to be the likely winner before Wings of Eagles' charge, driving up on the outside.
But the Aidan O'Brien trained outsider produced an incredible turn of pace that could not be matched.
O'Brien was gushing in his praise for Beggy. He told ITV Sport: "What can I say he is a world-class rider, he is tactically very aware."
Douglas Macarthur and The Anvil made the early running, opening a six to seven length lead as they climbed the hill in the first half of the course.
But as the incline turned to descent, the packed closed the gap by Tattenham Corner.
Nevertheless, Douglas Macarthur, known as something of a one-paced runner, was still in the lead with one furlong to go. It was at that point in the race when the pack lined across the racecourse and Cliffs of Moher appeared to have timed things just right.
However in the final metres, Wings of Eagles fired the afterburners with kick that simply could not be matched.
