We bring you the 2020 Sussex Stakes result, and details of how you can watch a replay of the race with bet365.

This year’s Sussex Stakes promised to be an absolute humdinger, with Classic champions and Group One winner clashing at Glorious Goodwood.

Ger Lyon’s Irish 2000 Guineas winner, Siskin has been the pick of the punters during the build-up to Thursday’s race. British Guineas hero, Kameko also represented the three-year-olds, along with Newmarket runner-up Wichita, and his Ballydoyle stablemate, Vatican City.

Mohaather was the highest-placed of the older horses in the days preceding the Sussex Stakes. On the day, however, it was last year’s runner-up and reigning Queen Anne Stakes winner, Circus Maximus who attracted most of the market support.

On his only other visit to Britain, Siskin was withdrawn after playing up before the Middle Park Stakes. Ger Lyon’s will have relieved to see his star go into the stalls, but the favourite was the slowest away when the starter dropped his flag.

Kameko found himself at the front early on, but Circus Maximus soon swept through to lead. Vatican City went forward to help his stablemate keep up the gallop. Wichita accompanied Mohaather in the midfield, with San Donato bringing up the rear with Siskin.

Vatican City began to drop back through the field as they turned for home, forcing Mohaather to drop right out the back and switch to the centre of the track.

Oisin Murphy and Kameko found themselves boxed in on the rail by Wichita, and it looked for a while like Circus Maximus was going to hang on.

Two furlongs out, Siskin made his move and had the leader in his crosshairs. Suddenly, all eyes were drawn to the looming presence of Mohaather, who pounded down the centre of the track and snatched a maiden Group One triumph.

Circus Maximus was forced to settle for second again, with Siskin rounding off the top three. Kameko might have finished a little closer had he found some clear air at a crucial stage. The other runners finished a long way behind the top four.
