Start good and slow. Won easily; second and third driving. FLYING EBONY, well ridden and away forwardly, set the early pace, then followed CAPTAIN HAL closely and, after a sharp drive through the stretch outstayed the latter and won going away. CAPTAIN HAL showed fine speed and raced into a good lead, but tired slightly and appeared to have suffered from some interference when FLYING EBONY came over in the last eighth. SON OF JOHN raced prominently all the way and was in close quarters through last eighth. QUATRAIN began slowly and was far back all the way. Scratched - Reminder, Chantey, Reputation, King Nadi, Elsass.
