Pilsudski, second in the Prix de' l'Arc de Triomphe 13 days ago, gained rich compensation with victory in the Dubai Champion Stakes for three-year-olds and upwards, run over 3,200 metres.

Ridden by Irishman Michael Kinane, Pilsudki, evens favourite and winner of the Irish Champion Stakes and Eclipse Stakes this year, came from last to first to win by two lengths from Loup Sauvage (6-1), under Olivier Peslier.

Bahhare, a 9-1 chance ridden by Richard Hills, finished a further two lengths back in third in the seven-horse field.

Victory took Michael Stoute past the GBP2 million mark in prize money for the season, and gave him the champion trainer's title.
