Royal Duchess ridden by Adam Macnamara was making a quick reappearance after her win at this track a week ago, all things being equal she didn’t run a bad race but nothing really went her way as it had done previously and it may well have been a bit soon for her to be back on the track.

Remember Rocky also ridden by Adam Macnamara  ran a great race, he finished in third place staying on well at the end of the race, he was the first horse off the bridle and looked like he may struggle to stay with them but he dug really deep and stayed on fantastically over the last couple of furlongs for a well deserved place.

The trip was short of his ideal distance anyway but by the way he kept going there looks to be no reason he won’t stay further in time.
