Battaash failed in his bid to win a fifth successive King George Qatar Stakes as Suesa registered an impressive victory in the Goodwood feature.
Trained by Francois Rohaut, Suesa (7-1) was settled in behind during the early stages of the five-furlong contest as defending champion Battaash was among those to race prominently.
It briefly looked as though the Goodwood favorite could add to his laurels with another win, but this time his challenge waned in the final furlong as Suesa came storming down the stands rail.
She easily had the measure of Dragon Symbol in second, with the returning Glass Slippers back in third.
Battaash could finish only seventh.
