Analysis

A typically fast and furious affair and more joy for Ireland as NINETIETH MINUTE swept into the lead turning into the straight and held on gamely. The Polomoche, heavily backed in the morning, looked sure to win at the top of the hill cruising in behind long-time leader and stable-mate Copsale Lad but found nothing when let down. Mirage Dore ran a cracker, picking his way through tiring horses to snatch second place with Pause and Clause arriving late for third and Star of Angels also making late progress for fourth.
