Rainbow Bridge was well-favoured late in the betting and that money proved to be spot on as the Eric Sands-trained runner scored the Sun Met title in 2019.

Do It Again was trying to win for the third time but he would have to settle for second place as Rainbow Bridge had stolen a break on the field and that left too much for Do It Again to do in the straight.

Rainbow Bridge paid 5.00 to win with Do It Again and Head Honcho running third.
