Verdict

A Venetia Williams one-two as SOMETHING WELLS led home stablemate Ping Pong Sivola. The runner-up was backed throughout the day and she had them all on the stretch half a mile from home with Liam Treadwell pouring it on from a long way out. It looked as though he'd nicked it coming around the final bend but Something Wells gradually drew his stablemate in and jumped the last upsides before asserting on the run-in. Ping Pong Sivola rallied to her credit but couldn't quite get back up.
