In the ensuing battle, Rupert’s Horse attacks the Royalist foot on the hill while the elite cavalry, once out of his control, charges the Parliamentary horse as they move from behind the shelter of their friendly infantry. Rupert's cavalry manage to hold back the Parliamentary infantry and cavalry but are almost wiped out in the process.
On the other flank the Northern Horse move round to attack the parliamentary left flank and chase off the dragoons. They overrun the artillery on two occasions before the Parliamentary cavalry move through the wood and chase them off.
In the centre, the Royalist horse move forward with their infantry moving behind them. The cavalry charge the Parliamentary foot and are almost wiped out but this allows their foot to occupy most to of the objective.
