Twilight Son won the Diamond Jubilee Stakes by a head from Gold-Fun and long-time leader Signs Of Blessing to give Ryan Moore a Royal Ascot treble.
Moore, who won on Churchill and Sir Isaac Newton earlier in the day, said: "I always felt when I was going to ask him he would go and win. He travelled very strongly. When I rode him here last year (second to Muhaarar) he felt like a very good horse.
"He has obviously taken a while to come to hand this year, but Mr Candy was very confident about him. He's done very little wrong - he's only been beaten a a couple of times - and he's proved he's a high-class horse."
Owner Henry Candy, who bagged his first Royal Ascot winner since 1979, says he has been working the four-year-old hard ahead of the meeting.
"I never come here thinking I'm going to have a winner. We've been close a few times and it's marvellous to get the job done finally," he said.
"He (Twilight Son) is a strong character. After York I realised he needed a lot of work and I've been quite hard on him.
"I think he was probably showing the results of that, but he certainly stayed on well enough. At one stage I was thinking he was going to be third, but he really dug deep and the jockey on top dug deep."
Trainer Richard Gibson said of Gold-Fun: "We've come a long way and from a professional point of view you are always happy when your horse runs his race.
"It was tight and we've got no excuses to make. It wasn't quite our day but we're very satisfied with second place. He's going back home. We have international races in December. He'll have a break and we'll try again in Hong Kong in December."
