A’Ali’s class told as he ran out a convincing winner of the Group Two Wainwright Flying Childers Stakes at Doncaster.
Seven juveniles went to post for this five-furlong race.
Wheels On Fire was soon in front, with Frankie Dettori and A’Ali covering every move and Flaming Princess to the centre of the track.
With a furlong to race, Wheels On Fire still led, but A’Ali came to take him readily and moved 1 ½ lengths clear with Dream Shot just pipping Wheels On Fire for second.
The Simon Crisford trained colt was a Royal Ascot winner of the Norfolk Stakes and ran fifth behind Earthlight in the Group One Prix Morny.
Afterwards Crisford confirmed that a trip to the Breeders’ Cup is next for A’Ali.
