A Winning Royal Party

All nine ran on the turf, which was rated good to firm. Party Royal (Royal Applause (GB) - Voliere (GB) by Zafonic) was favored. Also getting respect were Cappadocia (Mujadil - Green Vision (IRE) by Green Desert) and Makinson Lane (Acclamation (GB) - Subtle Affair (IRE) by Barathea (IRE)). Nelsons Dockyard (Henrythenavigator - High Heel Sneakers (GB) by Dansili (GB)) was 14-1. Party Royal went to the lead from the start. The filly Someone's Darling (Jeremy - Green Sensazione (GB) by Green Desert) was up with him. Nelsons Dockyard was mid-pack early. Party Royal continued to lead. Cappadocia took a run at him, but Party Royal could not be caught. Mazeppa (Byron (GB) - Howards Heroine (IRE) by Danehill Dancer (IRE)) ran fairly evenly for third, and Out of The Blocks (Firebreak (GB) - Suzie Fong (GB) by Dr Fong) made up some ground for fourth. Nelsons Dockyard finished 6th, but he did show more interest than he did in his debut. Watch the Replay.
