OUR SILVER OAK mid-pack two wide around the first turn, went outside a rival then between on the backstretch, crept up three wide around the far turn, drew alongside rival at the quarter pole, cleared past the three-sixteenths, drifted out with a sixteenth to go and remained clear. STRIKE ME DOWN went four wide around the first turn then chased outside a rival, bid three deep at the seven-sixteenths pole, took control around the turn, overtaken by the winner in the stretch and stayed on to secure the place. MARGOT’S BOY dueled for the lead from outside, lost command at the three-eighths, chased along the inside into the drive and held the show. GO DADDY GO unhurried in the beginning, traveled in the two path then angled out into the stretch, showed a mild response and picked up a minor award. POPULAR KID traveled four deep around the first turn, remained off the rail up the backstretch, asked four wide around the far turn and flattened out in the final furlong. CAJUN TREASURE stalked the speedy pair from inside and never produced a bid. SEEKING REFUGE bobbled leaving the gate, reserved off the inside, three deep into the far turn, five wide into the stretch and could not rally. COLOUR ME HAPPY (GB) went three deep around the first turn, tracked outside a rival then between foes, spun three wide off the far turn and never threatened. MUGARITZ dueled from inside, dropped back around the far turn and tired.

SHIMMER ME TIMBERS dueled outside of LUCKYS LAST STAND, drifted out a bit leaving the turn, cleared in upper stretch and inched away late. TRIBAL NATION stalked outside the top pair, ranged up three then four wide into the stretch, lacked the needed late punch to best the winner but edged LUCKYS LAST STAND for the place. LUCKYS LAST STAND dueled for the lead from inside into and around the turn, chased the winner through the lane and got outkicked for second. BEN’S A GOALIE chased off the inside then angled into the two path, traveled two wide or outside a rival around the bend, swung out nearing the stretch and summoned a mild late bid. STALKING SHADOW raced off the rail then between rivals at the three-eighths pole, came off the turn four wide and never made an impact. FATHER O’FLAHERTY in range early and angled over to the inside, traveled a bit off the rail into the stretch, came out in the drive and flattened. MUSICAL GEM veered in at the start, traveled two wide into the turn, three wide into the lane and passed tired rivals. HARD METAL chased near the back of the pack early, four then five wide around the turn and never threatened. ROBIN’S LEGACY angled in early, went two wide into the drive and had nothing left. MANCUSO AT THE MIC saved ground off the pace and was never a factor.
