Analysis

PEDDLERS CROSS showed plenty of guts to stay on stoutly to land this whwne appearing beaten turning for home. Reve De Sivola had snatched the lead after two out but failed to hang on up the hill as the winners wore him down. Favourite Rite of Passage had every chance turning for home but found little and finished third. Well-fancied Quel Esprit departed early and Sleepy Hollow ran out at the second last when disputing the lead.
