Took keen hold, towards rear but in touch with leaders, good headway and led over 4f out, alone up the centre home straight, ridden and drifted left when joined over 1f out, led clearly inside final furlong, stayed on (op 7/2)

b g Mastercraftsman (IRE) - Promise Me (IRE) (Montjeu)
Raced wide early, raced in second, prominent over 4f out, against far rail home straight, weakened over 1f out, eased and dropped to last inside final 110yds (trainer's rep said, regarding the poor form shown, that gelding had run flat, having run at York 21 days previously; jockey further added that he felt something amiss with gelding inside final furlong and felt it prudent to ease gelding; vet examined gelding during routine testing and had nothing to report) (op 11/10 tchd Evens)
