Richard Fahey maintained his strong start to the season with victory in this valuable contest for SIR REGINALD who was having his first start since being gelded. He ran a series of sound races after winning his maiden before enjoying little luck at this track on his final start in a similar contest that was won by Fury. He raced in the centre of the track just behind the early pace, moved well into the race and galloped on strongly to post an improved performance although he did have to survive a stewards' inquiry. Madany appeared to have enough room to challenge between Button Moon and Masaya but Richard Hills switched his filly to the outside of Button Moon and inside Sir Reginald where there appeared to be less room. Paul Hanagan ensured that there was no way through for the filly who lost valuable momentum and ground before closing all the way to the line once in the open; her supporters will consider her an unlucky loser. Khor Sheed had been on her toes in the paddock but didn't travel as well as the first two home so she deserves some credit for keeping on to finish a close third. Cruiser made good late headway to post an encouraging start to his season and can make his mark once his sights are lowered. The maiden Button Moon showed speed but is already exposed and this performance will not help her handicap mark. Masaya kept on at the onepace and will benefit from being stepped back up in trip having won over seven furlongs as a juvenile. The once-raced Rafaaf showed considerable improvement from his debut and it remains to be seen if he's flattered by this. Shim Sham and Neebras proved particularly disappointing. Neebras fairly bolted down to the start, missed the break and was never involved whilst Shim Sham was moved up to contest the lead at around halfway but weakened very quickly as though something was amiss.
