The Paul Perry-trained The Mission Horseform scored a good all-theway win on a track which seemed to be favouring on-pace runners. He went to the front and then ran along at a very good tempo considering the conditions (first 1000m 62.04), setting up a clear lead. He still held a good break on straightening and went on to score decisively.

The favourite Invader Horseform settled well back in fifth place, one off the rails, before improving nicely (deep) coming to the home turn. He went to second at the 200m but he could not make any further ground on the leader and then fought on to hold that position to the post.


Whispered Secret Horseform raced back third place, improved (under riding) at the home turn to be a distant second on straightening. She then kept battling on soundly to hold third placing.
