John Gosden’s Wings of Desire put himself firmly in the Derby picture by winning the Dante Stakes at York this afternoon.

Gosden’s colt managed a sweeping success from Aidan O’Brien’s Deauville on the Knavesmire.

The three-year-old thrust late to beat Deauville with Foundation, Gosden’s other entry in the race, finishing back in third.

Interestingly, Frankie Dettori climbed off Foundation to ride Wings of Desire, who was only making his third start.
