King Of Tonga and Andok were both produced right on the line by jockey Dave Nolan to win at Redcar. King Of Tonga improved for his debut run at Beverley where he finished third to show a good attitude to battle at Redcar. He chased the leaders and challenged over the final furlong. He crossed the winning line with Rathbone and Freed From Desire. The judge was needed and the photo showed he had got up to win by a nose.
Andok was held up in mid-division and started to make headway approaching the final furlong. He battled to the line and again got up on the line with Nuits St Georges. The photo was needed and he had got up to win by a nose.
