Breaking from the gates well, the Street Sense gelding was forced to settle well within the pack from the wide and awkward barrier 14, allowing early leaders Ygritte and Sniper Fire to set a reasonable pace over the back straight.

Forced wide rounding the bend, jockey Hugh Bowman steered Hallow Crown around his rivals, emulating the feats of 2013 champion Zoustar from the wide draw and finding top gear in the final straight to finish a short nose in the clear of Paul Messara’s brave runner; Shooting To Win running on for third.
