Hurricane Lane completed a Derby double for Godolphin; as he collared Lone Eagle close home to win a thrilling renewal of the G1 Irish Derby at the Curragh, Ireland; on Saturday, 26 June.

The Charlie Appleby-trained colt had started his three-year-old season with two impressive victories; including the G2 Dante Stakes, before finishing third behind stable-companion Adayar in the G1 Derby at Epsom Downs earlier this month.

After showing good early speed; Hurricane Lane soon disputed third behind Matchless and Lone Eagle before being relegated to a close seventh after the first three furlongs.

The Godolphin runner was angled out to deliver his challenge for William Buick approaching the three-furlong pole and stayed on strongly to go second just inside the final quarter-mile; drifting towards the inside rail in the process.

Lone Eagle had already kicked for home under Frankie Dettori; and held a four-length advantage a furlong and a half from home. Hurricane Lane made relentless headway on the leader throughout the final furlong; getting up in the final strides for a neck verdict. With the front two pulling seven lengths clear of Wordsworth in third.
