Ridden by Brian Cawley, For A Finish took over the lead from the first flight, went clear from the third and never saw another rival before tiring slightly on the run-in for a four and a half lengths win over Knockmehill Lady.
Doyle, who was recording his 12th winner of the season, was not present for the win Brian Cawley did later say “that's my 12th winner and I ride out for everyone and anyone but mainly Charlie Swan and Mikey O'Connor.
“It wasn't really the plan to make the running. Plan A was to get a lead and Plan B was to make our own running! He was probably well 'in' off his chase mark today.”
