Cape Town - Martial Eagle (Yogas Govender/Aldo Domeyer) sprang an 80/1 shock to overcome a poor draw to land the prestigious Grade 1 J&B Met by a neck.

Hill Fifty Four at odds of 22/1 finished second with Beach Beauty finishing one and a half lengths back in third.

2/1 favourite Jackson finished a disappointing fifth, and second favourite, 2012 Durban July winner Pomodoro, finished in fourth.
