Verdict

A surprise result, and questionable form, but an interesting race nonetheless. Victory went the way of prominent racer CRUSADE under Seamie Heffernan, and on first inspection it would appear that up with the pace was the place to be. He raced more down the centre of the track than many, skipped a length or two clear a furlong out, and then found plenty of reserves when challenged inside the final furlong to hang on for a gritty win. He was dropping in trip here, and the feeling might be that this son of Mr Greeley out of a sprint mare might struggle to be as effective over a mile next season. Runner-up Lilbourne Lad ran a cracker, moving into contention from midfield with two furlongs to run. He didn't have to shoulder a penalty here unlike earlier in the season, and it showed, as he put in a powerful performance and seemed to relish hitting the rising ground coming out of the dip. Reply finished third, and did best of those who raced on the stands side rail. He was never too far off the pace and looked as if he might pounce on the rail, but couldn't run down his stablemate. Balty Boys ran a season best in fourth. His close-up run may lead people to question the form (perhaps rightly so), however his jockey made a bold move to try and make all on the far side and it nearly paid off. He was only a nostril out of the places and only lost out in the dying strides. The talking point of the race is probably Caspar Netscher. Searching for his third top level win of the year, after Gimcrack and Mill Reef successes, he was badly outpaced by halfway, having fluffed the start slightly, before absolutely rocketing home. He cannot be classed as unlucky, as he got the gaps, but would surely have caught the winner in another 10 strides and lost little caste in defeat. He probably heads to the Breeders' Cup, and after this run connections may favour the mile race. Two others ran cracking races - namely Saigon and West Leake Diman. The former stayed on from off the pace and looks more than ready for another furlong, whilst the latter was always up with the pace in the centre of the track and ran a gallant race in defeat. B Fifty Two ran well but could never quite get to the leading bunch, whilst Family One travelled well for a long way (held up) but ultimately flattered to deceive and was well-beaten. The other well-fancied runner, Bapak Chinta, showed good pace to lead on the stands rail but he quickly got shuffled back before the race started in earnest and he trailed in last. This was disappointing, and he looked beaten even before the longer trip became an issue; this wasn't his true running.
