The longest race of the meeting takes some getting at this stiff track and Stratum, who was penalised for his victory in this race the previous year, stayed on best to defend his crown for Willie Mullins. Reshoun, the 66-1 shock winner of the Ascot Stakes at the previous year’s meeting, was a gallant second, while the strong-travelling Calling The Wind and Falcon Eight, successful in the 2021 Chester Cup, were third and fourth.
