A race that has worked out extremely well in recent years with victories for Hoh Mike, Sir Gerry, Total Gallery and Society Rock and PERFECT TRIBUTE added her name to the rosta with a sparkling turn of foot to steal the race close home. She was highly tried after winning her maiden on debut and was not disgraced in finishing third in the Princess Margaret (Margot Did second) before proving slightly disappointing at York. She pulled hard in the Fred Darling on her reappearance and never landed a blow but settled much better over this furlong shorter trip in a stalking position behind Libranno. She appeared to be treading water well inside the final furlong but suddenly found her stride to pick up between horses and win a shade cosily. Aneedah didn't make her debut until September and then ran well in a valuable sales race the following month before winning her maiden over a mile. She, too, failed to land a blow in the Fred Darling but coped well with this first run over six furlongs keeping on well to the line; her optimum trip may well turn out to be over a furlong further but she had raced keenly on her reappearance and final start at two and will need to settle better in order to fulfil her potential but this, at least, gives her connections more options for the time being. Margot Did appeared to be travelling all over the field but, not for the first time, didn't find as much of the bridle as appeared likely and is becoming expensive to follow although she did race a little keenly early. She has proved to be an admirably consistent (and smart filly) though and probably wasn't helped by having to challenge in the centre of the track and may be best with more cover. Libranno had the run of the race but posted a solid effort conceding weight all round on his return to sprinting. Madany had looked unlucky in running in a sales race at Newmarket but saw plenty of daylight on this occasion and ran respectably in the face of a stiff task. This was an encouraging return from Murbeh who can be expected to come on for the outing. Penny's Pearl looked outclassed but gave herself little chance having failed to settle whilst Windsor Castle winner Marine Commando was struggling to go the pace in the final quarter of a mile and looks in need of further; he does have plenty of stamina on the distaff side of his pedigree and should be able to build on this.
