Michael Jarvis’ Pressing won the International Topkapi Trophy at Veliefendi in Turkey for a third successive year.
In a re-run from last year, Andrew Balding’s Dream Eater emerged from the pack to chase him home, but just like 12 months ago Pressing held sway.
Neil Callan had the seven-year-old sat just off the very steady early pace and it proved to be the correct decision as Jimmy Fortune had plenty of ground to make up on Dream Eater.
Pressing shot clear a furlong out but drifted from the centre of the track to the far rail and was tying up in the closing stages, the line coming just in time.
Luca Cumani’s Mabait ran a solid race to finish third but Godolphin’s Invisible Man and Frozen Power were never in contention.
