A fantastic field of 16 sprinters entered the stalls ahead of the 2023 Nunthorpe.

All eyes were on defending champion Highfield Princess, who bounced back to form at Glorious Goodwood last time out. King's Stand winner Bradsell sat second in the betting ahead of the juvenile Big Evs, who came in for support before the off.

Another Royal Ascot winner, Khaadem also took his chance in the field. Frankie Dettori rode Twilight Calls, with Regional, Get Ahead and Dramatised also featuring in the field.

As soon as the stalls burst open, Live In The Dream burst into the lead. Sean Kirrane's mount established an early lead over Highfield Princess, who sat ahead of Equality in the pack down the centre of the course. Big Evs was quickly away on the near side and led the smaller group in the early stages.

As the two groups merged together, Hollie Doyle managed to find some space on Bradsell, who soon joined Highfield Princess in second. The market leaders began to make inroads into Live In The Dreams lead, but to everyone's surprise, the leader kept on finding.

Adam West's four-year-old still held a two-length advantage at the furlong marker. Try as she might, Highfield Princess couldn't reel in the leader, and Live In The Dream hit the line an impressive winner of the Nunthorpe.

Highfield Princess finished a clear second ahead of Bradsell. Makarova won the race for fourth with Regional. Equality crossed the line sixth.
