This was a procession with Isinglass moving effortlessly into the lead approaching the final two furlongs and being eased down so much that he won by only a cosy half a length in 3 minutes 13.4 seconds. In an outstanding career he won £57,285 in prize money, equivalent to £6.7 million in 2017, and captured the Triple Crown. Over Round 103%
