Eggz rated back off of the pace, trailed to mid-way on the turn, began to inch up through the turn getting into contention entering the lane, wore down all foes, held sway late.  Reasoning raced mid-pack to the turn, up to press the leader, good battle through the lane, second best.  Exactly set the pace to the furlong marker, headed, ceded.  Lady Lucky evenly throughout.  Surrey mid-pack down the backside and into the turn, drifted widest of all for the drive, nothing left.  Kent pressed the pace with an inside position, tired late.
