Rewilding oozed class with victory in the Dubai Sheema Classic under Frankie Dettori at Meydan.
Winner of the Great Voltigeur at York last season but disappointing when favourite for the St Leger, the Mahmood Al Zarooni-trained colt was having his first start since his Doncaster flop in September.
Ridden in mid-division as Rulership took over from Laaheb in front, the 2-1 market leader showed a telling turn of foot at the furlong pole to sweep to the front.
Redwood briefly went with him, but Dettori’s mount was too strong and won with something in hand.
Calvados Blues made it a one-three for Godolphin having suffered a particularly troubled passage for Ahmed Ajtebi, and could be counted unlucky not to have been at least second.
