The 2017 Blue Diamond Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) winner Catchy Horseform put up a nice effort in winning here. Having her fifth run this preparation, she settled in last place in the nine-horse field before Joao Moreira moved her up behind runners nearing the home turn. She went widest of all at the home turn, dashed to the front at the 200m and then went on to score in good style.

Showtime Horseform settled in fourth place on the rails from his inside barrier (1), got along the inner to challenge at the 200m and kept fighting well for a good second.

I Am Excited Horseform  raced in sixth place (between runners) angled into clear running on straightening, challenged at the 200m and battled well for third, her first defeat in four runs this preparation.

Booker Horseform raced outside the leader (Houtzen) and held on for (2.6 lengths) fourth.

The favourite Viridine Horseform was settled back second last place, running keenly in stages due to the moderate early tempo and failed to gain clear running in the straight to finish (3.8 lengths) eighth. His performance should be overlooked.
