Verdict

GONE RACING raised his game when proving 3½ lengths too good for Deauville Society at Tramore and, though 10 lb worse off with that rival now, he is taken to confirm the placings. The 6-y-o proved that that breakthrough success was no flash in the pan when third over this C&D subsequently and probably has more to offer, whereas Deauville Society looks rather exposed. Crimson Chief also has claims.
