It’s never ease carrying more than 12 stone to win under Rules, so fair play to Zerachiel who got off the mark over fences with a dour staying effort under 12-2 with notable assistance from the saddle from Tom O’Brien.

It looked for most of the final mile that Zerachiel would have to settle for a place, but he kept on plugging away up the straight and with the favourite looking vulnerable after the last, Tom switched to the rail and won by a head in the end.
