Quality mare English Horseform , having her fourth run this preparation, scored her first win since taking out the Challenge Stakes (Gr 1, 1000m) at Randwick just over 12 months ago in winning this Group One race, her second victory at that level.

She began well from her inside barrier (1) and Tim Clark soon had her handily placed on the rails, just behind the leaders who were going at a strong pace. She then got along the inner at the 200m and finished too well to score a very good win. 

Impending Horseform  travelled nicely in eighth place, before improving (wide with cover) from the 600m. He put in a good run (deep) on straightening, challenged at the 100m and kept running on gamely for second. 

Le Romain Horseform  was trapped deep from his wide barrier (11) and moved up (still deep) to be third outside the leaders. He briefly got to the front at the 100m and then fought very well for third, staging an excellent effort after a wide trip. 

The favourite Redzel Horseform  attempted to find the front but was caught outside the leader (Monsieur Gustave) travelling at a strong pace. He briefly got the upper hand at the 200m but then tired after his early efforts to finish fourth, beaten less than a length. 

Spieth Horseform  raced back in ninth place and did well in running on nicely for (1.8 lengths) fifth in a promising effort, resuming here for the Lindsay Park training team while the second favourite In Her Time Horseform  raced in sixth place and performed well below her best, just battling on for (2.5 lengths) ninth.
