Verdict

A hugely impressive victory for DUKE OF MARMALADAE, who had this in the bag at the furlong marker. He sat in fourth just off the pace set by stablemate Red Rock Canyon and jockey Johnny Murtagh eased him into a challenging spot on the home turn. Pressing was still going better than the eventual winner inside the final quarter but once Murtagh got his mount stoked up into top gear he breezed past his rivals and was soon in the clear. Pipedreamer travelled well into the race but could not get to the winner but both he and Pressing should be winning in good company before long. Phoenix Tower finished runner-up for the second successive time in a Group 1 and seemed suited by this 10-furlong trip. He deserves to get his head in front.
