Angelic tracked the pace from the rail, pushed up to engage foe inside the sixteenth, caught the leader in the final strides. Luna Tick broke alertly to set the pace, drifted out into the lane, continued to lead to the final sixteenth, caught. Grand General rated back trailing to the lane, closed widest of all, best foot too late, dh for the show. Seamstress unhurried early racing well off of the pace 2p, 4p for the drive, evenly, dh for the show. Secret Dreamer was no threat. Atomic Litta off a step slow, rushed up to track the pace to the furlong marker, tired.
