Another cracking finish with two horses who had run in the Derby just 13 days earlier finishing first and second, Changingoftheguard holding on to deny Grand Alliance by a short head. The winner, who was a front-running fifth at Epsom, stuck to the rail like glue and kept on galloping, while Grand Alliance (11th in the Derby) challenged down the middle of the track and may have won had he not hung badly to his left in the closing stages.
