A photo-finish isn't the rarest occurrence you'll see on race-day with multiple events per day going to the judge, but the sixth event at Doncaster overnight threw up one of the most remarkable conclusions to a race in recent memory.
The 1600m race didn't look to be anything out of the ordinary on paper but an exciting end to the event looked to be in the offing as Tom Collins, Notforalongtime, Indie Angel and Ajax Tavern moved clear of the field in order to fight out the finish.
