This looked a decent heat and the well-bred GYR got the better of a thrilling finish as the first three flashed past the post in unison. All three had prior experience and perhaps the fact that the winner had the stands' rail to run up against might have helped his cause. Runner-up Run For The Hills travelled strongly in front and responded well to pressure and it will not be long before he goes one better while Frognal lost nothing in defeat either and showed a willing attitude. This trio were clear of Magaling, who was eased a fraction well inside the final furlong once his chance had gone. He was in turn clear of the remainder. Mark Johnston's Count Paris fared best of the newcomers and made a pleasing debut while Seek N'Destroy was withdrawn at the start on veterinary advice.
