Verdict

All the action was on the stands side in the big-field handicaps on the straight mile yesterday, but any draw bias was dispelled as middle to high numbers dominated here. The field split into two groups and the winner FAREER, drawn bang in the middle in 15, was brought into the race quietly by Richard Hills. He emerged from the stands side pack in the final furlong and was driven out to edge the far side trio by a neck. Secret Society came from box 13 and edged towards the far side, running a cracker along with Mirrored who came from the outside trap in 30, finding a little trouble-in-running under Mick Kinane. Espiritu was also involved in the photo and he has reacted well to the visor. He looked a tricky customer in earlier races but looks a thorough professional in headgear. River Captain made a bold bid from the front on the stands side but was just found wanting by four better-handicapped horses in the closing stages. Favourite Brief Encounter never looked happy and was shuffled back quickly under William Buick.
