Verdict

Another peach of a ride from teen ace William Buick as he steered SPELL CASTER through a paper-thin gap on the rails to snatch victory in the last 75 yards. Asfurah's Dream led from the gate till the furlong pole and was hampered when the winner and Jazz Jam swamped him from either side but still held on to finish a gallant third. A rough race did no favours for Farley Star who was beaten for the gap on the rails by the winner when going well and Perfect Star, reappearing after a 305-day absence, who was in the firing line also at the furlong pole and was eased after being bumped. Both should be watched next time out while the two market leaders Ghaidaa and Lee Miller seemed to have their limitations exposed.
