Line Of Duty came with a late run to put Europe on the board with victory in the Grade One Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf.

Fourteen contested this one mile race, including four Europeans.

At the start it was Forty Under who went on but was soon passed by Somelikeithotbrown, heading into the first turn.

Racing into the back stretch, it was Somelikeithotbrown who led by a length from Forty Under and Opry, with Arthur Kitt racing handily.

Heading to the top of the stretch, Somelikeithotbrown still led Forty Under, with Arthur Kitt close up.

Straightening up, Somelikeithotbrown still led, but Line Of Duty came flying down the outside under William Buick, with Uncle Benny.

Line Of Duty gradually overhauled the long-time leader and at the line got up narrowly from Uncle Benny and Somelikeithotbrown, with Arthur Kitt fourth.

However, a Stewards’ Enquiry was called after the first two horses had bumped down the home stretch and a nervous William Buick had to wait and suffer until his victory was confirmed.

The Charlie Appleby trained Line Of Duty, a son of Coolmore stalliojn Galileo, was yet another Godolphin Group One winning juvenile colt, after Quorto, Royal Marine and Royal Meeting.
