The Chris Waller-trained colt Zousain Horseform  has now raced four times for two wins and he was quite impressive in scoring his first stakes success in taking out this Group Two race.

He settled back in eighth place, behind a strong tempo, before looking for a split on turning for home. He then got through to third at the 200m, hit the front at the 100m before drawing away to score decisively.

Mishani Hustler Horseform  raced outside the leader (Pennino) at a good tempo and kept fighting gamely for second after working on the pace for most of the race.

Blue Book Horseform  raced near the tail of the 11-horse field, switched deeper into clear running on turning for home and kept running on well to take third, just in front of Sizzling Ace Horseform  who came from last to finish (2.8 lengths) fourth.

Dynamited Horseform  was a handy sixth to the home turn and held on for (3.5 lengths) fifth while Sizzling Belle Horseform  settled back in the field and was blocked in the home straight for eighth, resuming here.
