Peter Harris’s 4-year-old Mill Stream (Ire) (Gleneagles {Ire}–Swirral Edge {GB}, by Hellvelyn {GB}), who ran second to the reopposing Washington Heights (GB) (Washington DC {Ire}) in last month’s G3 Abernant S. at Newmarket on seasonal return, stepped forward to claim a last-gasp victory in a dramatic renewal of Wednesday’s G2 1895 Duke Of York Clipper S. at York. The Jane Chapple-Hyam trainee annexed Deauville’s G3 Prix de Meautry and Listed Prix Moonlight Cloud in seven sophomore starts before undergoing a wind operation at the end of last year.

Mill Stream tracked the leaders in sixth, after an alert getaway, from the outset of this straight six-furlong dash. Rowed along soon after passing halfway, the 4-1 favourite came under sterner urging inside the final quarter-mile and was driven out in the latter stages to nail Shouldvebeenaring (GB) (Havana Grey {GB}) by a nose on the line, in a thrilling three-way photograph, for a career high. There was a heart-stopping moment approaching the final furlong where William Haggas representative Tiber Flow (Ire) (Caravaggio) parted company with rider Tom Marquand in an horrific-looking fall. Both escaped relatively unscathed after being assessed.
