Bulletin continued to blaze a trail with Chelsea Cloisters to the outside and joining issue at the top of the stretch.
Straightening for home, the front two continued to dominate, with Soldier’s Call unable to respond.
Bulletin saw them all off though and went three lengths clear late on for a decisive victory under Javier Castellano, with Chelsea Cloisters fading late on but holding on for second. So Perfect finished fast and late for third, best of the Europeans.
