SMARTY JONES, bumped between horses approaching the first turn, settled in good position along the backstretch, raced just behind the pacesetter leaving the far turn, closed the gap from outside midway on the turn, made a run to challenge at the top of the stretch, surged to the front with a furlong remaining then edged away under steady right and left hand encouragement. LION HEART rushed up to gain the early advantage, raced uncontested on the lead along the backstretch, set a rapid pace along the rail for a mile, dug in when challenged leaving the quarter pole, battled heads apart into midstretch but couldn't stay with the winner through the final sixteenth. IMPERIALISM bumped and steadied in traffic at the seven-eighths pole, raced far back for six furlongs, saved ground into the far turn, began to work his way out for room on the turn, swung six wide at the top of the stretch then closed late while drifting in through the stretch to gain a share. LIMEHOUSE was shuffled back a bit along the inside on the first turn, raced in the middle of the pack for six furlongs, saved ground while launching his bid approaching the quarter pole, made a run to reach contention in midstretch but couldn't sustain his bid. THE CLIFF'S EDGE broke a bit slowly, was outrun while strung out five wide going into the first turn, moved to the outside of TAPIT midway down the backstretch, continued wide while far back to the top of the stretch then failed to threaten while improving his position with a mild late run in the middle of the track. ACTION THIS DAY was unhurried in the early going while racing well off the pace, steadied along the inside midway on the turn, swung out in upper stretch then passed mostly tiring horses. READ THE FOOTNOTES steadied in traffic between horses on the first turn, raced three wide while gaining ground along the backstretch, steadied in traffic on the far turn, made a run to reach contention midway on the turn but couldn't sustain his rally. BIRDSTONE was pinched back a bit at the start then steadied in traffic in the early stages, worked his way forward between horses at the half mile pole, raced within striking distance on the turn then lacked a strong closing response. TAPIT broke a bit slowly, steadied in traffic at the seven-eighths pole, was caught five wide leaving the first turn, continued well off the rail along the backstretch, angled in a bit while gaining slightly at the top of the stretch then lacked a further response. BORREGO was reserved for a half, steadied in traffic between horses at the half mile pole, made a move to reach contention leaving the turn then faded in the stretch. SONG OF THE SWORD checked along the inside on the first turn and failed to seriously threaten thereafter. MASTER DAVID bumped while between horses on the first turn, raced well back for six furlongs, steadied in traffic at the half mile pole and was never close thereafter while six wide at the top of the stretch. PRO PRADO was caught four wide on the first turn, chased the leaders from outside along the backstretch, edged a bit closer midway on the turn then flattened out. CASTLEDALE (IRE) swerved out in the early stages, raced in tight approaching the far turn then failed to mount a serious rally thereafter. FRIENDS LAKE steadied between horses while in tight on the first turn, never reached contention. MINISTER ERIC steadied along the rail leaving the first turn, moved up along the inside along the backstretch, dropped back on the turn and gave way in the stretch. POLLARD'S VISION bumped at the start, stalked the leaders while four wide for six furlongs then gave way. QUINTONS GOLD RUSH up close early, took up between horses at the half mile pole then gave way and was eased late. Posts one through four were moved out due to the scratch of WIMBLEDON.
