Jockey Frankie Dettori continued his impressive form as he won the Sussex Stakes on Too Darn Hot at Glorious Goodwood on Wednesday.

The John Gosden-trained evens favourite pulled clear in the final furlong to win from Circus Maximus and I Can Fly.

The three-year-old, owned by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, was briefly trapped in a pocket but came through to win the mile prize comfortably.

It means an 11th Group One victory for Dettori in 62 days.

The 48-year-old Italian had claimed a 10th top-level win this season when he won the Goodwood Cup with Stradivarius on Tuesday.

"I'm so lucky. It's an amazing team that we've got," said Dettori.

"We've got amazing horses that are trained by a fantastic genius of a trainer. I haven't got enough superlatives for him.

"I've had an amazing summer and long may it continue. John Gosden is the genius - he puts it on a plate for me and I do the rest."
