Verdict

A poor turnout for a Listed contest but that shouldn't bother HAWKESBURY, who followed up a promising debut second to the hitherto unbeaten Limato by landing a small Doncaster maiden in facile fashion. Belardo should provide formidable opposition after a solid effort last time when upped to Group company, coming home fourth in the July Stakes behind Ivawood. Diaz is respected despite possibly having his limitations exposed last time but Carry On Deryck is hard to assess on the back of a surprise success here on debut just under a fortnight ago.
