Aidan O'Brien's Winter saw off stable companion and hot favourite Rhododendron to win the 1000 Guineas on the Rowley Mile three weeks ago and she was a red-hot 8-13 market leader to follow up back on home soil in the hands of Ryan Moore.

Fellow Ballydoyle inmate Hydrangea adopted a pacesetting role early on before the Mick Halford-trained Rehana was given her head by Pat Smullen and allowed to run to the lead.

However, her effort was short-lived and Winter loomed ominously alongside racing inside the final three furlongs before scooting clear.

The result was never in doubt from there as the daughter of Galileo further extended her lead and passed the post with plenty in hand.

Roly Poly and Hydrangea boxed on to finish second and third, making it a one-two-three for O'Brien, who was winning the race for a seventh time.
