LITTLE BRIDGE secured the hat-trick having backed-up at Sha Tin and ran out a relatively cosy winner under Zac Purton. The six-year-old showed good speed from the stalls to hold a position early on in the front rank and was still travelling extremely well approaching the distance before being driven out to hold off Bated Breath in the final 75 yards. He could be back in 12 months to defend his crown but his immediate future is in the Far East again with a race earmarked in Japan in September. Bated Breath delivered once more and is a thoroughly consistent, top-class sprinter. He tracked the leader into the closing stages but could not quite muster the pace to pounce close home. If all is well, he could have a crack at Black Caviar on Saturday in the Diamond Jubilee while the July Cup is another obvious target. Sole Power was just behind Bated Breath last time at Haydock and chased him home once more. He can be considered a little unlucky as he had to make his bid away from where the main action took place while the ground may also have been softer than ideal. This was another sterling effort though and fast ground in the Nunthorpe at York would be right up his street. Medicean Man stayed on from the rear and his odds have been trimmed for Saturday's Wokingham - this was a career best and his prospects would be clear if able to repeat this effort going back into handicap company. Spirit Quartz is also at the top of his game currently and ran right up to his best while Night Carnation moved well to the two-furlong pole before only being able to find the one pace. It was 12 months ago that Caledonia Lady sprang to prominence at this meeting and she ran an absolute screamer again. This is not the first time she has been unable break on terms as she gave up as much ground as she was beaten having still had the whole field to pass with a quarter of a mile to travel. The money had poured in for Wizz Kid after her win at Chantilly recently but she could never make any sort of impact on the way to gaining some late ground when the race was all but over. Tangerine Trees and Hamish McGonagall showed good early speed with the former sticking to his guns very well but Margot Did has seemed out of sorts all season and that trend continued here.
