A tremendous training performance from John Best here as he provided first and third and it was the outsider of his trio, the 100-1 shot Flashmans Papers, who showed a blinding turn of foot to score narrowly from the solid favourite Bushman Ranger, with Mullionmileanhour narrowly taking third from Effort in fourth. A real cavalry charge for this finale and always going a real pace from the off, the field fanned out across the course. In similar fashion to the six-furlong Coventry Stakes earlier in the card, the strong pace played into the hands of the eventual winner, who was rushed off his feet at halfway but found a stunning turn of foot at the furlong marker. He still looked in trouble but when switched around the field on the stands side he picked up really well and was soon on a par with Bushman Ranger, before passing him yards before the line. Both horses were drawn in the middle of the pack but there seemed to be no real draw bias, however it remains interesting that no-one took a chance on coming across to the stands rail. Total Gallery made giant strides at the furlong marker, but his challenge petered out, whilst Brae Hill was a big drifter and having shown some early pace never threatened to win. Saucy Brown was well backed to follow up his recent win but he could only plug on at the one pace down the centre of the track, whereas Silver Shoon found a bit of trouble in running and can be considered slightly unlucky. Mullionmileanhour, the third home, ran a blinder as all he was doing at the line was gaining and he looks one to side with when tried over six furlongs in the future.
