 The Autumn Sun Horseform  remains unbeaten after three starts, quicklyadvancing to take out this Group One feature impressively. He settledback in ninth place, improved (wide with cover) from the 800m but wasstill conceding the leaders about six lengths as he fanned deep at thehome turn. He then put in strong run (in the centre of the track) andfinished far too well to score by a neck, going away. He is a talented coltwith a very bright future.

His Chris Waller-trained stablemate Zousain Horseform raced in seventh place, tracked up (wide with cover) nearing the 600m,got through to challenge at the 200m and after hitting the front briefly atthe 100m, fought really well for a very good second.

Lindsay Park-trainedfilly Fundamentalist Horseform raced in fifth place (between runners), moved up atthe home turn, challenged at the 200m and did very well in fighting on forthird in a good performance in this class.

Sesar Horseform settled near the tail of the14-horse field, was still well back before going deep on straightening. Hethen kept running on very well to take (2.1 lengths) fourth, in a really goodeffort stepping up to 1600m here.
