DERBY hero Workforce provided trainer Sir Michael Stoute with his first ever winner in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe when he edged out Japanese raider Nakayama Festa in a thrilling finish to Sunday's showpiece race at Longchamp.

The colt, who looked in fantastic condition before the race, was given a brilliant ride by Ryan Moore, who was also securing his maiden victory in the prestigious contest. For owner-breeder Khalid Abdullah it was a fourth success following Rainbow Quest (1985), Dancing Brave (1986) and Rail Link (2006).
