Malakahna won for the 6th time in her career with a game success over 2m at Ascot under Callum Hutchinson.

The 4yr old daughter of Manduro was always close up and when ridden to challenge the front running Gumball from two down, she was always going best.

Taking the lead from the gallant grey inside the final furlong, Malakahna stayed on strongly to win by a length and three quarters, with stable companion Justus close up in third.
