had been luckless at the start at Royal Ascot but proved better than ever on his first start since to complete back-to-back wins in this race under very different conditions, but again showing a very good attitude under pressure; mid-field, pushed along before halfway, good progress over 2f out, led inside final 1f, just held on; he's tended to need an end-to-end gallop to see him at his best, so sticking to these sort of races might be prudent, for all a career-high mark beckons.

has been given a chance by the handicapper and ran a cracker, this not far off his best, connections deserving credit for getting him to stand more racing than he did in his time with Owen Burrows; mid-field, took strong hold, hung right before halfway, headway 2f out, forced to switch over 1f out, finished well, just failed; he's underperformed previously when the ground has been on the soft side, which would be a concern with regards the autumn, so he's probably one to be cracking on with throughout the summer.

was back up in trip and again shaped well, coming from much further back than the others to make the frame; slowly into stride, held up, pushed along soon after halfway, headway over 1f out, finished strongly; he's fairly unexposed for a 4-y-o sprinter and it's easy to see other big handicaps panning out better for him than this one did.

can't catch a break, needing only a bit more luck to see him win a race like this, this effort putting him right at the top of the shortlist for the next big handicap he's aimed at, first home in his group, like he had been in this race last year and in the Ayr Gold Cup subsequently; patiently ridden, headway from halfway, kept on well, first home in group; he doesn't have to wait for Ayr, no surprise if connections look to pick up some listed prize money on the way, like they did last year.

has been on his game all year, every reason to think he's still in top form given how this panned out, leading the unfavoured group for such a long way; led group, ridden 2f out, weakened inside final 1f; the uphill finish perhaps didn't play to his strengths, but a race over 5.5f at York at the Ebor meeting might (edged out over 6f at Dante meeting there earlier in season).

is a past winner of this, while his last 2 runs had suggested he's been coming back to the boil and this effort strengthened that notion, seen to nothing like best effect having encountered trouble in the wrong half of the field; held up, pushed along soon after halfway, hampered under 2f out, had to weave way through, finished well; he's very much one to be interested in for a similar event before the season is out.

All 28 ran.

Winning Owner: Doug Graham, Ian Davison, Alan Drysdale

A Stewards' Cup that unfolded in similar fashion to the Wokingham, the draw having a big influence after the field split in to equal groups, stalls 1-13 and favourite Inver Park ultimately up against it, and like Rohaan at Royal Ascot, Commanche Falls was winning this contest for the second year running, the first horse to complete back-to-back wins in this since Sky Diver in 1968; there's every reason to think the form will stand up to scrutiny in other top handicaps later in the season, Great Ambassador heading the eye-catchers list given he did best of those in the unfavoured group, with Regional and Summerghand both also shaping well.

COMMANCHE FALLS had been luckless at the start at Royal Ascot but proved better than ever on his first start since to complete back-to-back wins in this race under very different conditions, but again showing a very good attitude under pressure; mid-field, pushed along before halfway, good progress over 2f out, led inside final 1f, just held on; he's tended to need an end-to-end gallop to see him at his best, so sticking to these sort of races might be prudent, for all a career-high mark beckons.

TABDEED has been given a chance by the handicapper and ran a cracker, this not far off his best, connections deserving credit for getting him to stand more racing than he did in his time with Owen Burrows; mid-field, took strong hold, hung right before halfway, headway 2f out, forced to switch over 1f out, finished well, just failed; he's underperformed previously when the ground has been on the soft side, which would be a concern with regards the autumn, so he's probably one to be cracking on with throughout the summer.

REGIONAL was back up in trip and again shaped well, coming from much further back than the others to make the frame; slowly into stride, held up, pushed along soon after halfway, headway over 1f out, finished strongly; he's fairly unexposed for a 4-y-o sprinter and it's easy to see other big handicaps panning out better for him than this one did.

GOOD EYE (SWE) is a listed winner on the continent and ran up to his best back in a handicap, the bright speed he showed keeping him out of trouble; led overall on near rail, pushed along soon after halfway, headed inside final 1f, kept on.

TINTO ended his time with Amanda Perrett with a squiggle, so it's been some renaissance by him for current connections, again running well and needed no excuses; in touch, pushed along over 2f out, edged right, no extra only late on.

GREAT AMBASSADOR can't catch a break, needing only a bit more luck to see him win a race like this, this effort putting him right at the top of the shortlist for the next big handicap he's aimed at, first home in his group, like he had been in this race last year and in the Ayr Gold Cup subsequently; patiently ridden, headway from halfway, kept on well, first home in group; he doesn't have to wait for Ayr, no surprise if connections look to pick up some listed prize money on the way, like they did last year.

MAKANAH has been on his game all year, every reason to think he's still in top form given how this panned out, leading the unfavoured group for such a long way; led group, ridden 2f out, weakened inside final 1f; the uphill finish perhaps didn't play to his strengths, but a race over 5.5f at York at the Ebor meeting might (edged out over 6f at Dante meeting there earlier in season).

INVER PARK was strong in the betting 6 weeks on from his Buckingham Palace win, and probably remains in form, seeming uncomfortable facing such a speed test in the early stages, while in hindsight, his rider would have been better off going the other way from his middle draw; mid-field, pushed along before halfway, headway 2f out, kept on.

SUMMERGHAND (IRE) is a past winner of this, while his last 2 runs had suggested he's been coming back to the boil and this effort strengthened that notion, seen to nothing like best effect having encountered trouble in the wrong half of the field; held up, pushed along soon after halfway, hampered under 2f out, had to weave way through, finished well; he's very much one to be interested in for a similar event before the season is out.

MR WAGYU (IRE) won the consolation event last year off 15 lb lower, a nod to the progress he's continued to make since and he's best treated as if still in form, his task a difficult one under a 6-lb penalty for a narrow win last time; chased leaders, pushed along around halfway, weakened inside final 1f.

CHIL CHIL possibly still needed this run just a fortnight on from a belated return, seeming a bit rusty, the run likely to serve a purpose though for a return to pattern company later in the year; chased leaders, pushed along halfway, weakened inside final 1f.

FIRST FOLIO had shaped well from a poor draw in the Wokingham, but failed to on that in first-time cheekpieces, again in the 'wrong' group, but a few others from that side shaped better; close up, ridden soon after halfway, weakened inside final 1f.

GULLIVER wasn't so well drawn as when runner-up in this off the same mark last year, but at least put a poor showing in the Wokingham behind him, a brief move into contention suggesting he's still in reasonable heart; held up, ridden over 2f out, progress over 1f out, effort flattened out.

ABOVE (FR) was below form back in such competitive company; mid-field, pushed along halfway, one paced; he had to be reshod at the start which caused a delay.

SAINT LAWRENCE (IRE) without the headgear this time, was on the wrong side but again ran below form anyway; slowly into stride, mid-field, pushed along halfway, weakened inside final 1f.

POPMASTER (IRE) was possibly unsuited by the track, struggling from a long way out, and his Wokingham second showed what he can do in this sort of company; chased leader, struggling before halfway, weakened 2f out.

METHOD (IRE) making handicap debut, fared no better than last time, his season in danger of going the wrong way after a good start, comments that could apply to his whole career in fact; slowly into stride, held up, pushed along over 2f out, struggling when hampered 1f out, not persevered with once held.

ZARGUN (GER) seems to be in a lull for now, but will be well treated for when he does bounce back, nothing wrong with his earlier form; close up, pushed along before halfway, weakening when badly hampered over 1f out.

LAMPANG (IRE) is best excused this run, almost down on his nose at the start and then meeting trouble; stumbled start, mid-field, ridden before halfway, hampered 1f out, eased final 100 yds.

BATWAN (FR) had finished runner-up in pattern company when last seen but fared little better than in the Wokingham when last seen on these shores; held up, pushed along before halfway, beaten when hampered over 1f out.

WHENTHEDEALINSDONE easy to back having been among the favourites at declaration stage, was well held (reported after to have bled); in touch, ridden over 2f out, struggling when hampered over 1f out, weakened.

ABLE KANE followed a below-par effort with an even worse one having been fractious at the start; slowly into stride, in rear, pushed along before halfway, made no impression.

JUSTANOTHERBOTTLE (IRE) gave trouble in his stall (not for the first time) and ran poorly; close up, pushed along soon after halfway, weakened over 1f out.

RAATEA wasn't in the same form as last time; chased leaders, struggling before halfway, lost place over 2f out.

ANNAF (IRE) didn't get the chance to show what he can do and can have a line put through this run; mid-field, pushed along halfway, headway when badly hampered over 1f out, no chance after, not persevered with once held.

TYPHOON TEN (IRE) was well held after 10 months off; blindfold removed late (like in Silver Cup at Ayr when last seen), always behind.

COACHELLO (FR) a smart performer in France, offered little on first outing for new connections after 8 months off; mid-field, pushed along halfway, weakened over 1f out.

RATHBONE ran poorly; bumped start, soon behind, pushed along halfway, made no impression.
