Verdict

A tremendous four-furlong finish after a two-mile dawdle and it was Sam Hitchcott who drove Missoula forward to score by a short head from Mamlook in second, whilst the well-backed favourite Liberate edged out Bukit Tinggi for third. Legend Erry took the field along for a long way but was overhauled at the half-mile marker, firstly by Liberate who had raced prominently throughout. He kicked clear but was then challenged at the two-furlong marker by Bukit Tinggi who had raced wide in midfield throughout and he looked to have made a winning move having travelled well. Unfortunately he didn't seem to do an awful lot when he hit the front and as the line approached it was Missoula and Mamlook who were staying on the best towards the stands side. Having looked to have his head in front yards from the line, Mamlook was reeled back in by the winner who showed plenty of guts and determination for a first Flat success for Suzy Smith and what a place to do it! Of those further back, Som Tala ran a game race and wasn't beaten far, whilst Jawad and Basalt were two more who have only been beaten by a few lengths and as such deserve plenty of credit. The slow tempo would not have suited Tears Of A Clown or Hawridge King, who would have preferred a couple of front-runners to have gone hammer and tongs from the off.
