The second favourite was gifted the race when the odds-on Peveril tipped up at the last. This was the five-year-old’s fourth start in Britain, having finished behind Silvianaco Conti in the Persian War Novices’ Hurdle at Chepstow, and then behind Nadiya De La Vega on his fencing debut at Warwick.

Shalimar Fromentro was second at Auteuil on his sole start in France, still trained by Nick Williams, who paid just €2,500 for him at the 2007 Arqana December Yearling Sale.
