Start bad and slow. Won driving; second and third same. WORTH was hustled into the lead and, maintaining an easy advantage under restraint, appeared to be an easy winner to the stretch turn, but tired and had to be hand ridden near the end to shake off DUVAL. The latter was going gamest at the end. FLAMMA acted badly at the post and was away poorly, but closed a big gap into a good third. FREE LANCE tired in the stretch. WHEELWRIGHT and SONADA ran disappointingly. Scratched - The Manager, Patruche.
