The pair fought out a terrific duel in the final furlong with Brian Ellison’s 25-1 outsider The Mackem Bullet looking as though she might just win the battle.
However, Fairyland (6-4 favourite), who had been up front throughout battled on bravely for Ryan Moore and got the verdict by a nose. Queen Jo Jo was two lengths away in third place.
The disappointment of the Group Two heat was Angel’s Hideaway, who faded out of contention after being short of room when the race hotted up in the final quarter-mile.
