Holly Takes the Circus
The All-Weather was Standard, as usual. Dartford (Giant's Causeway - Apple of Kent by Kris S.) was scratched, leaving 13. Circus Mondao (Hard Spun - Dominique's Show by Theatrical (IRE)) was favored. He was off well, and with the leaders from the start. Setting the pace was Holly Martins (Rail Link (GB) - Pretty Girl (IRE) by Polish Precedent), while Vagabond King (Ishiguru - Feabhas (IRE) by Spectrum (IRE)) was off slowly. Holly Martins continued to lead, with Circus Mondao in pursuit. Also up close was Yes It's the Boy (Yes It's True - Storminthegarden by Stormy Atlantic). Dynastic (Dynaformer - Demure (GB) by Machiavellian) made a move to get involved, as Circus Mondao drifted out a bit. Dynastic took a slight lead, but longshot Holly Martins fought back, and was a head in front at the wire. Circus Mondao held third, and finished up well. Watch the Replay.
