Verdict

A convincing success by RED GULCH who secured an overdue first victory of the season for rookie trainer, Ed Walker, having had to fill the role of bridesmaid on three occasions this season.

Despite the large field size - this was a fairly uncomplicated handicap and having sat in behind the pace, Jean Pierre Guillambert was able to take a gap inside the final furlong and win this with something in hand. He reportedly scoped dirty after the Bunbury Cup but this was much more like it and the step up to a mile seemed to work the oracle.

Guest Book had been the subject of plenty of support in the betting offices in the morning. Having raced prominently, he kept on under a typically robust ride from Silverstre de Sousa without quite being good enough. Truism did not get as clean a run as the winner. Amanda Perrett's charge kept on for third though could hardly be considered an unlucky loser. Comments that similarly apply to Don't Call Me who did not help his cause by stumbling at the start.

Rulesn'regulations appeared to appreciate the application of blinkers for the first time. Allowed a soft time upfront, he probably doesn't quite see out the mile and will be of interest returned to seven and if the headgear works for a second time.

Duster travelled as well as anything though was not good enough on the day. Chapter and Verse ran on eye-catchingly when it was all too late. Stefanki was up to his old tricks and refused to race.
