Highland Knight (7/1) tried to run his rivals ragged from the front but began to hang towards the centre of the track through the final quarter of a mile.

In contrast the winner raced straight as a gun barrel under the Hughes drive and he reeled-in the leader inside the final furlong and ran on strongly to score by a length-and-a-quarter.

Highland Knight held off Chill The Kite for the forecast spot in a race very few got involved in.

"We were worried when it rained. It was closer to soft than good. He's a good horse, he won the Craven and finished fourth the Guineas when I made the running on him. This could be his year." Hughes told Channel Four Racing.
