Fanning was full of praise for Subjectivist after the win.
"He's been a great horse this year, even last year. He just keeps improving, he's very good.
"I always thought it would take a very good one to get by him.
"In Dubai on that good ground, he was always doing his best work near the end. I never thought that was an issue, he'd go on any ground.
