Not a lot went to plan for Cosmic, missing the break and getting well behind early but Kevin Stott (deputising for Jimmy who left Thirsk earlier to go to Hamilton) switched him to the stands rail and got a great tune out him lead close home.
"Competitive stuff. Those drawn high were at a real advantage. COSMIC CHATTER found a dream run up the inside and dug deep when asked to pick up the leaders. He relished the decent pace from halfway and had dropped to a mark 1lb higher than when last successful in 2015."
