Robert Havlin triumphs in Stockholm Cup on Norwegian star Square De Luynes

There may have been a significant international contingent but Norwegian star Square De Luynes turned the Group 3 Stockholm Cup into a procession, cantering home under Rab Havlin by seven lengths.

Sent off the 15-8 favourite, the son of Manduro had to overcome a wide draw in stall 11 but was taken swiftly to the front by Havlin, readily pursued by last year's runner-up Crowned Eagle.

Turning into the home straight, Luke Morris was working hard on Crowned Eagle and, like fellow British raider Amazing Red, he could never land a blow to finish an eventual eighth. 

Trained by Niels Petersen, for whom this was a sixth win in the 1m4f race, Square De Luynes ran out an equally impressive winner of the Listed Norsk Derby last year, where he scored by seven and a quarter lengths.
