Verdict

SOUTH CENTRAL proved his 13-length win at Carlisle on his debut was not an aberration as he pinged out of the stalls and made all for a game victory. He came under pressure inside the final furlong and started to drift to his left a little but found the line coming in time as he was challenged by Spin Cycle. Ted Durcan unleashed his mount down the stands┬┐ side with a sustained run and looked sure to pick up the eventual winner. He could not get his head in front but this was a gallant effort in defeat from a smart colt. Prolific was beaten at a short price on easy ground at Windsor last time but ran much better on this quicker surface. Fourth-placed Flashmans Papers, successful in the Windsor Castle Stakes two days ago, ran a blinder and was not beaten far while stablemate Elegant Cad travelled well for a long way and a maiden will be a formality.
