BOLD FORBES broke alertly to make the pace, raced slightly removed from the inner railing, drew into a lengthy advantage rounding the first turn, rallied gamely when engaged by HONEST PLEASURE on the final turn, drifted out a bit entering the stretch, but responded to left handed whipping through the drive to prove best. HONEST PLEASURE also broke in stride to duel with BOLD FORBES through the initial run through the stretch, was taken back after three furlong sunder snug restraint, commenced a rally from the outside on the second turn to loom menacingly. He lost ground when the winner drifted out in the upper stretch but continued gamely under a hand ride only to falter slightly through the closing strides. ELOCUTIONISH saved ground to loom menacingly on the stretch turn but could not sustain his rally. AMANO advanced steadily along the outside to reach striking distance a quarter mile away but had nothing left when the real test came. ON THE SLY was without early speed. COJAK closed ground on his belated bid but could not menace. INCA ROCA was outrun. PLAY THE RED raced wide throughout. BIDSON was without speed.
