1st Dreaming Of Lys, trained by Angeos Stable
The form book played out pretty perfectly in this race with this former grade three winner stalking the pace and then picking up the leader and sauntering away for an easy two length win. This is the three year olds fourth win of the season and third black type so whilst she hasnt progressed beyond grade three yet she is certainly more than paying her way.
2nd All Fueled Up, trained by Axeman
second best on the book and second best in the race. She took up a position at the tail and stayed on past the two outsiders but never got near the winner.
3rd Maybe Forever, trained by Hambletonian Stables
Made the running and considering her last win was over five and a half furlongs it was no surprise when she was run down by the first two. She stuck on well enough though and this wasnt a bad effort for a long priced outsider.
4th Nice High Five, trained by Hambletonian Stables
Thereabouts throughout and as is the HRP way she finished in a heap behind the winner losing out in the photo lottery and ending up last.
