The money proved spot on as AQLAAM landed a punt on the day with a game effort. Brought with his challenge approaching the distance from just behind the leaders, he kept on gamely after hitting the front although he did hang a little to his left in the closing stages. He can be expected to keep progressing and is up to a rise in grade. Runner-up Il Warrd hit the front rank alongside the winner and was carried marginally left, but it certainly did not affect the outcome. Dream Eater emerged from the pack but the front two had flown but his late headway carried him into a creditable third place.Stimulation is holding his form well and took fourth while Generous Thoughts still has races in him. He takes some stoking along and could never really land a blow but should be a major player in a Listed contest at this sort of trip.
