Athgreany made the early running ahead of Campanile, Fianne Gael and Hors De Combat, an order which remained constant until half way. At this point Fianne Gael took command, but was always being stalked by Athgreany who resumed control at the distance, running on strongly to score by a comfortable 4 lengths, with a head separating Fainne Gael and Hors De Combat.
