Analysis

A dramatic finish to the finale with REGAL PARADE claiming the spoils having gone for home from the distance down the stands¿ side. He was chased hard by the well-backed Jedburgh all the way to the line but could not reel him in. The winner¿s biggest threat was on the other side of the track as Dhaular Dar led home the pack and was only beaten on the nod and claimed second. Celtic Sultan showed some good speed to get to the head of affairs inside the last two furlongs but seemed to get lonely in the centre of the track and could not sustain his effort but finished a fair sixth.Docofthebay ran again after his second in the Hunt Cup but this was a big ask in another hot heat.
