Verdict

This was a very brave effort from the front by LADY GLORIA who made every yard under a confident ride from Tom Queally. The daughter of Diktat kept responding to her rider's urgigs when pressed inside the final furlong and her stamina just held out. "Last time she got left at the start, so it was the plan to get her out this time", said Queally. "She got going nicely and she's very game." This was just reward for the winner who also has placed form in Listed races from two visits to Goodwood this year. She has now fully justified being kept in training this term. Cicerole came with a wet sail near the line but met a very tough filly in the winner while Enforce was at the end of her tether and had no real excuses. Baharah and Selinka were never really a factor today. Riva Request ran well against her elders but is likely to be hard to place from here.
