Another fantastic day of racing

That's it for Day 2 folks. 

Some fantastic performances from the likes of Sir Gerhard and Facile Vega, but it's hard not to mention Tiger Roll as the highlight of the day, even if he didn't win. What a brave, gutsy little superstar he is. 

We'll be back in the morning. Click the link below to see all the racecards for Day 3 along with tips from the experts.
