IN 2013, one of the best bred horses in training won the Group 1 Derby in style at Epsom, the victory coming three weeks after a wide-margin win in the Group 3 Chester Vase.

Ruler Of The World, who had not made his debut until landing a 10-furlong Curragh maiden in April, was later short-headed by Kizuna in the Group 2 Prix Niel and he had the fourth six lengths behind when finishing a neck and half-length third to Farhh and Cirrus Des Aigles in the Group 1 Champion Stakes at Ascot.
