Stewards Cup 2009 Result

As always a very competitive handicap with 26 taking their chance and this one was no easier with the bookies going 8/1 the field. Markab was up there all the way and the group on the stand side was a long way behind at halfway and Genki fired home to win from Evens and Odds.
