Gavroche Gaugain, who went off at 11/2, was prominent for much of the contest and took it up a couple of fences from home. He needed a good jump at the end, got it, and ran on really gamely to land the spoils by half a length. The second, Night In Milan looked a big threat and traded odds on, but couldn't get there.
Next up we had Break The Chain and with the 8/1 holding up for a good while it was pleasing to see the selection go off at 4s. He was up there for much of the race but wasn't able to live with the winner in the end, going down by six lengths.
Confirmation of results with prices (advised --- SP):
Gavroche Gaugain, 1st/8, 7/1 --- 11/2
Break The Chain, 2nd/8, 8/1 --- 4/1
So a shame we couldn't quite get the double up, but a decent day and we look forward to tomorrow.
