CAPPA BLEU had never run under rules before but kept to the inside all the way by the ultra-cool Richard Burton he ran out an emphatic winner. He jumped well and responded to pressure, keeping on all the way up the hill. He'll be running under rules next season and Evan Williams will train him for a crack at the Hennessy. With youth on his side, he could be back here next year taking on some of the big guns. Turthen looked a likely danger jumping the last but he tired towards the end, while Baby Run was prominent throughout and ran a solid race.
