2 6 LADY'S CHOICE (H155) K Teetan B/H Stalked leader, took over passing 500M, fought hard vying for lead with a rival from top of straight, overran by winner late.
3 1 IMA SINGLE MAN (D476) Y L Chung V/TT From wide draw caught wide tracking leaders, gave good response when driven top of straight, kept closing final 200M, just denied by first two.
4 7 CALL ME GLORIOUS (H410) L Hewitson TT1 Began awkwardly then went forward to contest the lead, caught wide no cover, ran on alongside the leader to hold every chance on straightening, faded final 100M.
5 2 YOUNG ACHIEVER (J291) Z Purton TT1 Jumped fairly, settled at the back of the field, came from well back and made solid inroads final 300M, nearest finish.
6 11 PARTERRE (E234) K De Melo B Taken back to a rearward position, came wide 500M, finished off moderately, always held by leaders. (Blood in trachea.)
