While most those best-backed to beat him were battling with the problems presented by wide draws, Tim Clark was able to take advantage of a low draw as Super Caga continued in the form of his life for new trainer Richard Gibson. The seven-year-old won just two of his first 32 starts before joining Gibson, but has missed a cheque just once in nine attempts, with this success his third this term. 'He got a lovely run and then he just laboured under the big weight near the line,' said Clark. That allowed Giggles Forever to slice the margin to a short head after wrestling with the issue of gate 11, while good money also came for Floral Man (gate 10), Thanksgiving (nine), Excellent Win (12) and Life Of Beauty (14).
