The pace he set was only ordinary and that would not have been to the advantage of the hold-up horses, among whom the chief sufferers looked to be Halicarnassus and the favourite Monte Alto. The Hughie Morrison-trained winner had run well to finish third off a 4lb lower mark on his first try at this trip at York last month and, in a race in which nothing else wanted to go on, he was able to dictate at his own pace, which caused several of his rivals to take a grip. Having stacked the opposition up, he quickened off the final bend and had enough in reserve to hold the challengers.
