An emphatic victory for SPIRITUAL STAR who won this in the style of a very progressive horse. Despite being absent from the course since June - there was plenty of interest in the colt beforehand and he did not disappoint his followers. Brightly away from the stalls, he soon got to the front and was able to gradually wind up the pace - ultimately scoring under hands and heels.Elaal sat handily and having made some headway from halfway - he had no answer to the winner though kept on stoutly enough to win the race for second place. Snooky was the most experienced horse in the field. He needed plenty of encouragement from Dane O'Neill to go about his business and could be one to watch for handicaps next season. Mr Churchill was easy to back beforehand and was allowed to learn plenty in this experience. Confirmed probably pulled too hard for his own good though the support that accompanied his visit to the course suggests that he is not one to be discarding just yet. Bayan was an eyecatcher. Related to winners over further, he found his stride late and will be of interest once he steps up in distance. Cayuga was also making his debut. Sir Michael Stoute's inmate demonstrated distinct signs of greenness and this experience is unlikely to have been lost upon him. Tarkoor started abysmally and it never got much better.
