Verdict

A deserved win for BRONZE CANNON, who defied his Group penalty under Jimmy Fortune as they wore down Campanologist in the closing stages. The latter had looked to have poached the race with a burst at the two furlong pole having travelled well but the winner showed plenty of grit to reel him in inside the distance and edge ahead in the final 50 yards. Both horses should get plenty of credit as they fought all the way to the line. Dansant was not well placed as the tempo lifted and the front pair had gone beyond recall when he finally got into position. He did stay on well though on this return to turf. Doctor Fremantle was disappointing and could only mount a fairly short-lived effort from the rear down the outside. Barshiba went off quickly and was soon in a clear lead but those extertions took a toll while Tajaaweed was another to drop out tamely having raced in second.
