Former champion trainer Henry Cecil claimed his ninth win in the Musidora Stakes at York on Wednesday as Aviate produced a thrilling late surge to win.

The unbeaten filly (11-4) looked to be blocked in behind Gold Bubbles but flew to the line under jockey Eddie Ahern.

Cecil said he believes the daughter of Dansili looked well set to stay the trip in the Epsom Oaks on 4 June.

Gold Bubbles, a 20-1 chance, had to settle for second with Eleanora Duse third at 15-2 in the eight-runner race.
