Ramornie Hcp (LR)

WT: 54.0kg Type: OPEN

In a packed finish where the first nine runners went to the post less than two lengths apart, the Toby Edmonds-trained gelding Havasay won, his ninth win in 41 starts and his second successive Ramornie Handicap victory. He was ridden quietly and settled back in 13th place in the 15-horse field. He improved nicely between runners at the home turn, angled into clear running halfway down the straight and then finished well to grab victory by the barest of margins. Star Boy raced in fifth place, improved rounding the home turn, challenged on passing the 200m, hit the front at the 50m only to be caught on the post for (nose) second. Freddie Fox Trot was smartly away from a wide barrier and was a handy third most of the way. He challenged at the 200m and battled well for a close-up third while the favourite, the Godolphin-raced Haunted, missed the start and was near last to the home turn. He improved closer to the inner rounding the final bend and made late ground in restricted room for (1.4 lengths) eighth, looking somewhat unlucky.
