CracksmanCracksman finally came of age on the big stage after taking his rivals apart in devastating fashion in the Betway Great Voltigeur Stakes at York.

Five years after his mighty sire Frankel claimed victory in the Juddmonte International, it was the turn of one of his sons to produce the fireworks on the Knavesmire when putting in a display that was visually out of the top drawer in the Group Two event.

Although having to be nudged along by Frankie Dettori entering the home straight, the John Gosden-trained three-year-old quickly put the race to bed when hitting the front.

Sent on well over three furlongs out in the mile-and-a-half affair, the 4-6 favourite, who was last seen finishing second in the Irish Derby having been third in the Epsom version, quickly turned the race into a procession.

He eventually coasted home an eased-down six-length winner from Venice Beach.
