steadily progressive at 3 yrs, has already taken his form up a couple of notches this year, this runaway Chester Cup win evident of that, and although he owed a good bit to his position at the head of affairs, it might be folly to take this latest leap of improvement lightly given the idenity of those who chased him home, no easy feat to win this as a 4-year-old either, the previous horse to do so going on to win the Ascot Gold Cup after all; not the best away but got to the front from wide draw in little more than a furlong, quickened 3f out, drew clear under 2f out, in full command final 1f, won easily; he should have a future at listed/minor pattern level.

who attracted support, went one place better again in this race, his third successive placing in the contest, not having the luxuries of the winner in front and deserves plenty of credit for edging the battle for second; in touch, effort 4f out, forced wide over 2f out, stayed on, nearest at the finish and took second near the line; he should continue to run well in similar events.

fit from jumps (placed in the County Hurdle earlier in the spring), was strong in the betting and ran a cracker back on the Flat, coming from much the least-advantageous position of the first 5; shuffled back early and settled towards rear, headway when no room briefly 3f out, progress under 2f out, ran on, nearest at the finish though edged out of second close to the line.

9 lb higher than when narrowly winning the Cesarewitch when last seen 7 months earlier, proved his new mark to be a fair one; got across from worst of draw to press leader, quickened with winner 3f out, left behind by that one under 2f out, briefly dropped back to fifth well inside final 1f before rallying to regain fourth late on; he'll likely be back for plenty of the big staying handicaps.

after 6 months off, is down to a good mark and narrowly failed to make the frame in the race for the third year in a row, needing no excuses, though the testing ground perhaps wasn't absolutely ideal for one fully effective on firm; chased leaders, effort over 3f out, left behind by 2 leaders over 2f out, no extra well inside final 1f.

shaped as if still in good form, things not really going his way after he was unable to take advantage of the inside stall; hampered and shuffled back after 1f, off pace on inner, progress under 4f out, keeping on when short of room briefly under 3f out, plugged on.

back in Britain after 3 months off and without a tongue strap this time, shaped better than the distance beaten suggests, enduring a pretty rough race; mid-division, shuffled back to rear over 5f out, still long way back 2f out, plugged on straight; he'll be lower in the weights when next seen and isn't one to rule out with his yard turning the corner.

was beaten by more than the longer trip, best not judged on this run, winning on heavy as a 2-y-o but not seeming at home back under very testing conditions, also forced wide as he tried to get into the race; mid-division, went in snatches, progress out wide soon after halfway, lost place from 3f out, dropped away.

easy to back, might not have got home over 3f longer trip, also unproven on ground anything like this testing so it's easy enough to give him a pass; in touch, effort over 4f out, weakening when hampered under 3f out, dropped away, eased off.

after 7 months off, might be on the decline these days (though is still higher in the weights than when winning this in 2017) but this is a throwaway run all the same, something not right; mid-field, lost place 4f out, dropped away quickly, possibly amiss.

ended his time with Roger Varian on the up when last seen 12 months earlier and had been bought with this race in mind, but can have a line put through the run, unproven over the trip/on the ground and posted deep throughout; in touch but 3-wide, not settle fully, lost place quickly soon after halfway, pulled up long way out; provided he's none the worse for this he has to be worth another chance.

is a grand horse on the all-weather but not so good on turf, even on a sound surface, this ground certainly not for him, being forced wide merely exaggerating his demise; held up, tried to take closer order out wide over circuit out, bumped soon after, beaten over 4f out, pulled up.

Non Runners: MAGIC CIRCLE (IRE), BUSY STREET.

Winning Owner: Acorn, Brown, Parker & Scott

Time: 4m 33.09s Closing Sectional: (2.00f): 29.50s (99.3%)

For the second year in succession the Chester Cup was won by 6 lengths by a horse racing from a mark of 101, though this was unrecognisable from most renewals, the ground seeing to that, while the draw was rather turned on its head with the 2 highest-berthed runners getting across to sit first and second, the winner effectively in full control of the race as soon as he got to the front, his jockey Franny Norton - winning the race for the first time - allowed to set a sensible pace in the conditions, the slowest winning time of the race since 1988; acknowledging the obvious caution required in taking the bare result literally given the conditions, the next handful home behind the winner all have plenty of form in similar events and the form is likely to stand up better than might be expected.

MAKING MIRACLES steadily progressive at 3 yrs, has already taken his form up a couple of notches this year, this runaway Chester Cup win evident of that, and although he owed a good bit to his position at the head of affairs, it might be folly to take this latest leap of improvement lightly given the idenity of those who chased him home, no easy feat to win this as a 4-year-old either, the previous horse to do so going on to win the Ascot Gold Cup after all; not the best away but got to the front from wide draw in little more than a furlong, quickened 3f out, drew clear under 2f out, in full command final 1f, won easily; he should have a future at listed/minor pattern level.

WHO DARES WINS (IRE) who attracted support, went one place better again in this race, his third successive placing in the contest, not having the luxuries of the winner in front and deserves plenty of credit for edging the battle for second; in touch, effort 4f out, forced wide over 2f out, stayed on, nearest at the finish and took second near the line; he should continue to run well in similar events.

LOW SUN 9 lb higher than when narrowly winning the Cesarewitch when last seen 7 months earlier, proved his new mark to be a fair one; got across from worst of draw to press leader, quickened with winner 3f out, left behind by that one under 2f out, briefly dropped back to fifth well inside final 1f before rallying to regain fourth late on; he'll likely be back for plenty of the big staying handicaps.

FUN MAC (GER) after 6 months off, is down to a good mark and narrowly failed to make the frame in the race for the third year in a row, needing no excuses, though the testing ground perhaps wasn't absolutely ideal for one fully effective on firm; chased leaders, effort over 3f out, left behind by 2 leaders over 2f out, no extra well inside final 1f.
