Verdict

They raced right across from the stands' side to the middle of the track and it was Abernant Stakes winner MAYSON who coped with the drop back to the minimum trip very tidily. He raced widest of all in the centre but was the last to come under serious pressure - once Paul Hanagan adminstered a couple of reminders he soon asserted from the front-running Definightly to win cosily. It is up to York next in search of the hat-trick in the Duke Of York Stakes and the return to six furlongs on a flat track should not hold any fears. This was the runner-up's first crack at five furlongs and he was given a bold sight all the way although he had no answer once the winner got upsides. Elusivity travelled well chasing the front rank and Frankie Dettori could be seen trying to remain in behind horses with some cover for as long as possible. He perhaps saw daylight too soon and his run flattened out a little in the final half-furlong but this was still a promising performance. Spirit Quartz and Caledonia Lady both deserve extra merit as they raced away from the main action nearer the stands' side. The former has done well since joining Robert Cowell and should find a race while Caledonia Lady did her chance no favours with a slow start. She cut through the pack inside the final furlong having still had plenty to do in The Dip to finish on the heels of the leaders and she would be something to bet on if facing her own age group next time. Night Carnation also ran on well up the stands' side and has come on from her debut at Bath while Temple Meads will benefit from this after missing well over a year. Hamish McGonagall does his winning on flatter, quicker tracks so it was not a big shock to see him back out of things at the business end. Nunthorpe heroine Margot Did never really recovered from losing ground at the start and finished well out the back having been eased.
