2 8 DIVINE ERA (D507) K Teetan H2/TT Jumped fairly before travelling keenly one back in 2nd on the rail, became 3rd within 2L of pace coming onto home bend, snuck closer entering the straight and fought on dourly to snatch 2nd late.
3 7 PUBLICIST (H052) M Dee V Always thereabouts, travelling keenly off the rail without cover most of the way, quickened to hold some chance early in straight but unable to sustain effort closing stages.
