The Star Gc Mm 2yo Classic R.L

Age: 2yo Type: OPEN

Godolphin's filly Exhilarates staged a very smart performance in winning here. She was slowly away and raced in third last in the 16-horse field until tracking up (deep) behind runners rounding the home turn. She then showed a great turn of foot (coming wide out) from the 200m to grab an impressive victory by almost a length at the post. Dubious had a good trip in fifth place on the rails under Michael Walker. He took an inside run on straightening, looked the winner when clear at the 100m, only to be caught on the post for second after running a bold race. Hightail settled near the tail of the field from his outside barrier (16) before improving (wide with cover) from the 600m. He sprinted well on straightening, challenged coming to the 100m and then fought gamely for a very good third. Czarson raced in fourth place but caught deep from his wide barrier (12) and did well in holding on for (3.8 lengths) fourth after a difficult trip. While his Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained stablemate Unite And Conquer also had a hard run from a wide barrier (15) racing deep on the pace before tiring to finish (8.3 lengths) 13th.
