New Zealand-bred gelding Patrick Erin Horseform  scored his first Group 1 win in 27 starts with a solid staying performance in scoring here. Having his third run back, he settled nicely in ninth place on the rails under Corey Brown, improved (between runners) on straightening and finished best to grab a narrow but good win.

His Chris Waller-trained stablemate Brimham Rocks Horseform  began well from his wide barrier (15), and raced outside the leader (The Lord Mayor) before getting to the front at the 300m, only to be caught on the post for a close second after running a bold race.

Sikandarabad Horseform raced in fifth place, one off the rails, challenged strongly at the 200m and fought on well for a close third with High Bridge Horseform  making ground from tenth at the home turn for fourth, beaten a length and a half.
