Thierry Jarnet rode his second winner aboard 6-1 shot Kadrizzi in the Shergar Cup Sprint, but the Rest of the World team were confirmed as winners of the competition.

Jarnet took his time as fellow European Frankie Dettori sent Soapy Aitken into an early lead.

He weakened quickly, though, and Kadrizzi came through with his run on the far side of the track and got up to score by two lengths.

The Pierre-Charles Boudot-ridden Flying Pursuit was second to ensure it was a good result for Europe, with the team ending on 65 points.

Emma-Jayne Wilson guided Muhadathat to third for the Girls Team (54 points), but crucially, Kenichi Ikezoe was fourth on Suqoor and that took the Rest of the World tally to 68.

Sunflower and Martin Harley finished fifth, taking the Great Britain and Ireland final score to 53.

Jarnet was confirmed as the winner of the Alistair Haggis Silver Saddle, having earned 38 points for his team, eight more than runner-up Lerena.

"I am very happy with today," said Jarnet. "I am delighted to finally ride a winner at Ascot – it's a beautiful racecourse. The ground was perfect and it's fantastic to win the Silver Saddle. It's very nice to come to England and ride at these meetings.

"The competition is fantastic here and I've really enjoyed it. I'm delighted to have been the top jockey and it's always nice to win any award."
