Prince Bishop produced a stunning late run to win the Dubai World Cup on Saturday night and give jockey William Buick his biggest career win and seventh win for the Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor.

It was also the first for owner Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed in the 20th running of the world’s richest race.

Japan’s Hooko Tarumae under Michiaki Yabe and African Story, last year’s winner, under James Doyle, set the early pace with Long River (Mickael Barzalona) and California Chrome (Victor Espinoza), the international favourite, stalking on the outside in fourth.

Not much changed until they approached the final bend with Long River first to fade away and African Story dropped down the order.

California Chrome looked imposing on the home stretch but Buick made his move from the outside and drew clear to win by an impressive two and three-quarter lengths.
