Jockey Pat Dobbs used a patient ride to register his first grade III win. Dobbs settled Fantastic View third early, eased up on the outside of front-running Elshadi near the midway point and got the lead with a quarter mile to go. He finished well, with Dobbs keeping his attention focused. Elshadi aded to fourth place."We only bought him for 35,000 guineas and he is a half-brother to To The Rescue, who won here last year," winning trainer Richard Hannon told The Racing Post..
"He travels well in his races but does idle a bit in front. He's in a group I in Italy but that may be it for the season." Ladbrokes and Coral dropped Fantastic View to 25-1 for the 2004 2,000 Guineas.
