Second best to Marauding on Duke Of York Cup day, #7 Sand Path went one better in the penultimate contest, earning Preetam Daby's yard and Jason Watson their 5th and 3rd wins of the weekend.

Running in midfield, #7 Sand Path accelerated decisively in the home straight, before digging deep to fend off #4 Northern Spy (Manuel Martinez).

#5 Taranaki (Aurelien Lemaitre) landed 3rd, while #1 Master Of Spain (Nishal Teeha) completed the quartet.
